A science prodigy, Dr. Flanagan began inventing at age 8 and was only 13 when he invented the Neurophone, hoping to aid him in learning as he slept. By age 17, Patrick was featured in the 1962 LIFE Magazine issue dedicated to America's best and brightest, in a feature story titled "Whiz Kid, Hands Down." He has since appeared in TIME Magazine, major national talk shows, countless articles, and has spoken before international audiences about the Neurophone and his other inventions across the world.
The NEO Neurophone is not a smartphone. Rather, the brand-new 2015 NEO Neurophone is famed inventor Dr. Patrick Flanagan's profound, time-tested techno-meditation device that uses blissful ultrasonic waves to soothe and center your mind and allow the possibility to make you smarter.
The NEO Neurophone is the newest and most advanced model in a long series of Neurophones dating all the way back to the '50s when sci-fi was all the rage.
Ultrasonic waves are extremely beneficial to the human brain. If you google "brain ultrasound," you'll see universities only just now catching on to how great ultrasonics are for the mind, while a child prodigy named Patrick Flanagan, only thirteen years old when THE FLY and ATTACK OF THE 50 FOOT WOMAN played as double features at the local Oklahoma drive-in, had already invented his first Neurophone.
Since 1958, Dr. Patrick Flanagan and later his cutting-edge company Phi Sciences that he founded in 1987 have been refining his profound Neurophone discovery, first inspired by a 1911 Hugo Gernsback science fiction tale about a sleep learning tool. Patrick's Neurophone impressed Hugo (for whom the prestigious Hugo Nebula Awards are named) deeply enough to extend a personal thank you to Dr. Flanagan for carrying out one of Gernsback's visions of the future, which included the prediction of television.
Dr. Patrick Flanagan [1944 - 2019] invented the Neurophone in 1958. It is an electronic nervous system excitation device that transmits sound through the skin directly to the brain, for which he received U.S. Patent No. 3,393,279 in 1968.
The invention earned him a profile in Life magazine, which called him a "unique, mature, and inquisitive scientist." Flanagan continued to develop the Neurophone, and it is currently being sold as an aid to speed learning.
At age eleven, Flanagan developed and sold a guided missile detector to the U.S. Military. Aged seventeen, he gained his air pilot's license and was employed by a Think Tank at The Pentagon, later working as a consultant to the NSA, CIA, NASA, Tufts University, the Office of Naval Research, and the Aberdeen Proving Grounds for the Department of Unconventional Weapons and Warfare.
Since 1981, Flanagan has invented a series of useful devices and products based on water and specific mineral structures in the area of health. Several of these have been very successful in the marketplace. His identification of the special properties of the negative hydride ion, once ridiculed, received serious attention when Nobel laureate Chandrasekhar proposed it as a major component in far space. Several scientific papers by Flanagan about Silica Hydride have been published in peer-reviewed journals such as the 'International Journal of Hydrogen Energy' and 'Free Radical Biology and Medicine.'
Flanagan actively continues his activities as a scientist, inventor, and philanthropist, promoting new science and new approaches to human healing, especially those based on the great traditions of India and Egypt.
For decades, Dr. Flanagan has openly invited stringent scrutiny of his research and discoveries by the medical and scientific communities. The seeds of this effort are blossoming at an exponential rate as the scientific community is validating and embracing his extraordinary contributions. Academics and researchers at universities from Oxford to Stanford are beginning to study Dr. Flanagan's breakthrough discoveries and teach them to scientists of the future.
