Space Foundation Names Narbis Space Certification™ Program Partner

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.  — Much of the technology we use daily was originally developed for space exploration and later adapted to benefit our lives on Earth. The Space Foundation’s Space Certification Program awards a “seal of approval” to companies whose products and services can demonstrate a viable link to the space program, such as home insulation, air and water filtration systems, plant nutrition, robotics, and medical technologies. The seal can also be awarded to companies who promote or create interest in space-related topics, such as children’s book series, traveling planetariums, high-school curriculum, and space themed music.

The most recent company to become a Space Certification partner for its space-based technology is Narbis. This Pennsylvania-based company developed Narbis smart glasses to aid learning and concentration.

Narbis uses a NASA-developed algorithm to improve attention. NASA Patent #5,377,100, invented by NASA Senior Research Scientist Dr. Alan Pope, who is also on the Narbis advisory board and ongoing consultant for Narbis.

The NASA-patented algorithm utilized by Narbis smart glasses employs three sensors — one behind each ear and one at the top of the head ­-— to track relaxation, distraction, and focus. When the wearer is reading, working on a computer, or doing homework, and the glasses detect that attention is waning, the glasses alert the user by changing tint so they can get back on task.

See all of the Space Certified technologies on the Space Foundation website at www.SpaceFoundation.org

About Narbis
Leveraging the Narbis team’s previous success with an official NASA spin-off company developing products to help people practice staying focused, Narbis was founded in 2013 to continue developing ways to encourage people to practice their attention performance. Narbis has developed a convenient, at-home, easy-to-use training device designed to help individuals work on focus and concentration habits in daily activities.

The parent company, Domenic Greco Ventures, Corp., was named after Narbis founder Devon Greco’s father, Dr. Domenic Greco, a leading clinical psychologist. Sadly, Dr. Greco was diagnosed with ALS in 2009. Alongside his youngest son, Devon, he continued to work throughout his illness on innovation in the area of easy to use neurofeedback systems for individuals. Narbis was conceived by Devon before Dr. Greco’s premature death in 2013. He continues to be an inspiration to the work and innovation behind Narbis. Learn more by visiting https://narbis.com/
