No subject

light show plus an ordinary audio CD.  You "read books" with your eyes 
closed because they're reading them to you.  Meanwhile, the headsets 
flash lights at your eyes.  You could get much the same effect by 
listening to a Berlitz foreign language tape or audio book tape while, 
say, watching a screen saver or one of those disco light things from the 
'70s. 

Does it force you to learn?  Well, to the extent that you sit for 20 
minutes a day studying ANY subject, then sure, you'll learn.  The proper 
control would be to compare the learning rate to people who spend the 
same amount of time, without the flashing lights.  I couldn't find 
anything on the web site about that.

> Pretty awesome. 

Nothing special, IMHO.  But even if the novelty causes people to become 
more interested in studying & learning, then it's a good thing.
