Bubbles. And The Dutch Golden Age

Bubbles. And The Dutch Golden Age

We have to distinguish the 'bubble hysteria' the 'tulip mania' syndrome, and the blockchain .

Tulip mania was a period in the Dutch Golden Age during which contract prices for some bulbs of the recently introduced and fashionable tulip reached extraordinarily high levels and then dramatically collapsed in February 1637. It is generally considered the first recorded speculative bubble.

Early adopter, Crypto guru and author Clem Chambers believes it is a bubble, which has some way to run before it bursts.

During the dot-com boom, investors in start-ups like e-toys, Webvan and FreePC regarded market share as as practically the only significant metric of business success. Captivated by slogans like "Get big fast" and "Get Large or Get Lost" they urged companies to spend lavishly to lure customers in hopes of achieving insurmountable market share advantage. The companies responded: for example, via by discounting and couponing, they created price effects. Attracting customers through extraordinary low pricing – as low as zero in some cases – is a foolproof way of buying market share, at least temporarily.

Wired magazine preached the gospel of the giveaway, positing a steady climb from "free" to "premium" to "freemium" (free+premium) pricing of the product or service.

The problem is that price effects are evanescent. They disappear the moment the discounts end or another firm offers a better price. Typically between 1 and 2 percent of customers convert from free to premium services. You therefore need to reach millions of customers before the giveaway model becomes profitable. Freemium models also create freeloaders that can be hard to monetize (that is, to profit from), as FreePC discovered in 1999 when it gave away Pentium PCs in exchange for viewing ads and the prospect of online sales.

Brand effects are stickier. They arise when people come to associate a particular brand with quality. But brand effects, like price effects, are often difficult to sustain. They can also be extremely expensive. EToys spent millions trying to compete with Amazon and Toys R Us. Kosmo, an online company that promised free delivery of food, books, coffee, and other basic goods in major U.S. cities, hired actress Whoopi Goldberg as a spokesperson and paid her in stock, only to have the business collapse soon after.

This is far removed from blockchain technology. Price effects and brand effects have their place in startups growth strategy. But only network effects create the virtuous cycle cryptocurrencies do, which leads to the building of long-lasting network of users – a phenomenon we call – lock in!

John McAfee says that cryptocurrency will soon be the only form of payment people will use. Central banks will be a thing of the past. He sees Bitcoin reaching a value of $100,000,000due to the users increasing and mining equipment advancing.

Bitcoin is following Moore's law

The rule, which was devised in 1965 by Intel co-founder Gordon Moore, describes the exponential improvements of digital technology.

"Moore's law specifically applied to the number of transistors on a circuit but can be applied to any digital technology," Porto wrote in an email to Business Insider. "Any technology that is growing exponentially (i.e., 'following Moore's law') has a doubling time."

Force Of Nature

Force of Nature

by Daniel Bennett on May 06

Evolution of Mastery

For three million years we were hunter-gatherers, and it was through the evolutionary pressures of that way of life that a brain so adaptable and creative eventually emerged. Today we stand with the brains of hunter-gatherers in our heads.

Richard Leakey

It is hard for us to imagine now, but our earliest human ancestors who ventured out into the grasslands of East Africa some six million years ago were remarkably weak and vulnerable creatures.

They stood less than five feet tall.

They walked upright and could run on their two legs, but nowhere near as fast as the swift predators on four legs that pursued them.

They were skinny – their arms could not provide much defence.

They had no claws or fangs or poison to resort to if under attack.

To gather fruits, nuts, and insects, or to scavenge dead meat, they had to move out in the open savanna where they became easy prey to leopards or packs of hyenas.

So weak and small in number, they might have easily become extinct.

And yet within the space of a few million years (remarkably short on the timescale of evolution), these rather physically unimpressive ancestors of ours transformed themselves into the most formidable hunters on the planet.

What could possibly account for such a miraculous turnaround?  

Some have speculated that it was their standing on two legs, which freed up the hands to make tools with their opposable thumbs and precision grip.

But such physical explanations miss the point. Our dominance, our mastery does not stem from our hands but from our brains, from our fashioning the mind into the most powerful instrument known in nature – far more powerful than any claw. And at the root of this mental transformation. are two simple biological traits – the visual  and the social –  that primitive humans leveraged into power.

Our early ancestors were descended from primates who thrived for millions in a treetop environment, and who in the process had evolved one of the most remarkable visual systems in nature.

To move quickly and efficiently in such a world, they developed extremely sophisticated eye and muscle coordination. Their eyes slowly evolved into full frontal position on the face, giving them binocular stereoscopic vision.  

This system provides the brain a highly accurate three-dimensional and detailed perspective, but it is rather narrow. Animals that possess such vision – as opposed to eyes on the side or half side  – are generally efficient predators like owls or cats.

When our earliest ancestors left the trees and moved to the open grasslands of the savanna, they adopted an upright stance. Possessing already this powerful visual system they could see far into the distance.

In the treetops this powerful vision was built for speed – seeing and reacting quickly. On the open grassland, it was the opposite. Safety and finding food relied on slow, patient observation of the environment, on the ability to pick out details and focus on what they might mean.  

Keys To Mastery

A  man should learn to detect and watch the gleam of light which flashes across his mind from within, more than the lustre of the filament of bards and sages. Yet he dismisses without notice his thought, because it is his. In every work of genius we recognise our own rejected thoughts; they come back to haunt us with a certain alienated majesty. Ralph Waldo Emerson.

If all of us were born with essentially a similar brain, with more or less the same configuration and potential for mastery, why is it then in history only a limited number of people seem to truly excel and realise this potential power? Certainly in a practical sense, this is the most important question for us to answer.

The common explanation for a Mozart or a Leonardo da Vinci revolve around natural talent and brilliance. How else to account for their uncanny achievements than to put it down to something they are born with?

Yet, thousands and thousands of children are born with exceptional talent and display skill in abundance in some field yet they sometimes never amount to very much. While those who are less brilliant in their youth can often attain much more.

Natural talent or high IQ cannot explain their future achievement.

A classic example, compare the lives of Sir Francis Galton and his older cousin, Charles Darwin.

By all accounts Galton was a super-genius , with an exceptionally high IQ, quite a bit higher than Darwin's (these are of course, estimates done years after the invention of the measurement). Galton was a boy wonder who went onto having an illustrious Scientific  career, but he never quite mastered any of the fields he went into. He was notoriously restless, as is often the case with child prodigies.

Darwin, by contrast, is rightly celebrated as the superior Scientist, one of the few who has forever changed our view of life. As Darwin himself admitted, he was "a very ordinary boy, rather below the common standard in intellect ..I have no great quickness of apprehension … My power to follow a long and purely abstract train of thought is very limited." Darwin however, must have possessed something Dalton lacked.  

Darwin's father a doctor enrolled him at the University of Edinburgh as a medical student. Darwin did not take to the subject and was a mediocre student.

His father despairing that his son would never amount to anything, chose for him a career at the church. While Darwin was preparing for this, a former professor told him the HMS Beagle was to leave port soon to sail around the world, and that it needed a ship's biologist to accompany the crew in order to collect specimens that could be sent back to England. Despite his Father vehemently protesting, Darwin took the job. Something in him was drawn to the voyage.

Suddenly his passion for collecting. In South America he could collect the most astounding array of specimens. He could connect his interest in the variety of life on the planet with something much larger – major questions about the origins of species. After five years at sea pouring all his energy into this enterprise, accumulating so many specimens that a theory took place in his mind. He returned to England and devoted the rest of  his life to  the single task of elaborating his theory of evolution. In the process he had to endure extreme drudgery for instance spending eight whole years studying barnacles alone.

What sustained him was his devotion to the subject.

The  basic elements of this story are repeated in the lives of all the great masters in history: a youthful passion or predilection, a chance encounter that allows them to discover how to apply it, an apprenticeship in which they come alive with energy and focus.

They excel by their ability to practice harder and move faster through the process, all of this stemming from the intensity of their desire to learn from the deep connection they feel to their field of study.  And at the core of this intensity of effort is in fact a quality that is genetic and inborn – not talent or brilliance, which is something that must be developed, but rather a deep and powerful inclination toward a particular subject.

This inclination is a reflection of a person's uniqueness. This uniqueness is not something merely poetic or philosophical – it is a scientific fact that, genetically every one of us is unique; our exact genetic makeup has never happened before and will never be repeated.

This uniqueness is revealed to us through the preferences we innately feel or the particular activities or subjects of study. Such inclinations can be towards music or mathematics, certain sports or games, solving puzzle like equations or problems, tinkering and building, or writing and playing with words.

With those who later stand out by their patience, perseverance, delayed gratification, they experience this inclination more deeply and clearly than others. They experience it as an inner calling. It tends to dominate their thoughts and dreams. They find their way, by accident or sheer effort, to a career path in which their inclination can flourish. This intense connection and desire allows them to withstand the pain of the process – the self doubts, the tedious hours of practice and study, the inevitable setbacks, the endless barbs from the naysayers. They develop a confidence and a  resiliency that others lack.

The Inverse Philosophers Stone

Fragility

The Inverse Philosopher's Stone

Let us examine a method to detect fragility – the inverse philosopher's stone.

We can illustrate it with the story of the giant government sponsored lending firm called Fannie Mae

A corporation that collapsed leaving the taxpayer with trillions of dollars worth of debt & historical losses, ( and, alas, still, counting).

One day in 2003, Alex Berenson, a New York Times journalist produced a secret risk report to a Quant trader in New York City. A defector had passed these documents to Alex. It was the kind of report getting into the guts of risk methodology that for risk calculation only an insider can see – Fannie Mae made it's own risk calculations and disclosed whatever it wanted to whomever it wanted, the public or someone else. But only a defector could reveal the guts to see how the risk was calculated.

Alex, and said Quant, looked at the report: simply, a move upward in an economic variation led to massive losses, a move downward (in the opposite direction), to small profits. Further moves upward led to even larger additional losses and further moves downward to no profits. Acceleration of severe harm was obvious – in fact it was monstrous. So they can immediately see that a major blowup was inevitable: all exposures were severely "concave."

The Quant, a philosopher too, after viewing the report, worked purely on emotions not his brain, having a pang before even calculating any numbers from the report. It was the mother of all fragilities. A smear campaign ensued, nothing too notable. A few calls calling a few people charlatans. The key equation is the nonlinear is vastly more affected by extreme events – and nobody was interested in extreme events since they had a mental block against them.

The Quant went around telling anyone who would listen to him, including random taxi-drivers that a United States government-sponsored enterprise was "sitting on a barrel of dynamite."

Of course blow-ups don't happen everyday( just as poorly built bridges don't collapse immediately), and people kept on saying he was wrong and unfounded. His position of Quant enabled him to check similar institutions, and seeing that the problem was general, he realised that a total collapse of the banking system was a certainty.

If a 20kg rock was dropped on your stomach once it would hurt more than a 5kg rock dropped 4 times.

help.jpeg

Anticipating these these extreme events, being prepared and ready and knowing the course of action to take, developing from the observer into the doer. Taking an advantage of an opportunity like a global financial wreckage. This can eternally benefit your and your loved ones. The Quant, became a flâneur – his family became financially independent for life. He knew when the bear was beginning before everyone else. He did the same on Black Monday in 1987 – by selling on multiple markets -commodities, indices, stocks, shares, futures and options.

dow 2008.jpegns.

After this event the Quant became a flâneur sauntering around – lunching with Fat Tony and Doctor John observing and writing the fastest selling book of all time. Spending 36 weeks on the New York Times Bestseller list

'Fat Tony' or 'Horizontal Tony' is Tony DiBenedetto an intuitive guy who has never read a book in his life. He had a good appetite and was a renowned and celebrated luncheon date for restaurateurs, and resident office inmates alike. These inmates had liquefied stress hormones dripping from their pores, those who exhibit severe anxiety if they discuss anything that may divert them from what they think is the course of their "work," and when in the process of picking their brain you hit on a less uninteresting mine, they will cut you short with a "I have to run" or I have a two-fifteen."

The flâneur at flâneur attended Mathematics conventions.

He was scoffed at, banned and excluded from others.

Crypto economics was a development of the last global recession and banking crisis. Bitcoin and blockchain was a defence mechanism that was born out of the catastrophe, the latest, most certainly not the last, major ruin in central banking.

In another occurrence of crisis, the price of crypto will rocket. People will want to take all assets out of stocks, shares, and Indices, options, and futures and funnel it into crypto and certain commodities. Their trust in central banks will reach an all-time low.

China’s Blockchain

China

Blockchain

Blockchain is the most significant revolution since double-entry accounting gave the world a transaction between two parties. It's similarities to double-entry, from being part of the supply chain to it's application as a financial transaction, are inherent.

Blockchain emergence as a technology of many sides finds use in almost all business niches. Many countries have welcomed this technology. However some nations which were initially not confident on the technology or the need for it, have now looked at its increasing pace and applicability, the parameters are changing.

I am talking about China here.

This is hugely significant.

We know that in September 2017, China banned Cryptocurrencies and considered it illegal. The Cryptocurrency market cap crashed. However now, by April 2018 the situation has changed somewhat. I will explain why.

Chinese_flag_(Beijing)_-_IMG_1104.jpg

The Blockchain is at a budding stage. Despite the fact the platform provided the world with Bitcoin and ensuing crypto currencies, there are insecurities associated with 'bubble' theorem. It is the reason China backed off from Blockchain and Bitcoin. However, recently 2018 has brought about some changes to the way China are approaching blockchain.

For any G20 nation to compete in the world economy and the competitive market and to establish a strong foothold in this market, it is vital to adopt the most advanced technologies. and use it for a solution.

Although there are many nations adopting blockchain trying to tap into the benefits, we are still not witnessing it be part of the mainstream economy. China has now taken the initiative to use Blockchain as a part of the mainstream economy and therefore reap the benefits out of it.

Strategic Decision

The use of Blockchain is going to be a strategic move for China. The launch of Central Bank-issued Digital Currency (CBDC) in unison with the belt and road initiative is a prominent move in the right direction. Belt and road Initiative is China's international association with China-Japan-South Korea free trade area Eurasian Ecnci Union

belt and road.jpg

The increased prominence on CBDC is due to the fact cryptocurrency exchange is free from processing fees, it is way more efficient and convenient, and will have an automated implementation which will save time and reduce errors.

China see this being crucial because other countries would pay with RMB thus dramatically enhancing the liquidity and internationalising the RMB.

Business Growth

Chinese start-ups like VeChain have come up with a commercial Blockchain platform and cryptocurrency. This phenomenal company is managing and tracking the import of red wine from other countries. Consumers can use their mobile phone to scan the IoT tags which are attached to wine bottles. Doing this they can access all the information related to manufacturing, logistics, and distribution.

There are many Chinese Internet companies establishing Blockchain laboratories. These high tech labs are identifying the uses of blockchain and its application in real life. The aim is to integrate blockchain in the Chinese financial sector. They are integrating Blockchain n Business to Business (B2B) and Business to Consumer (B2C)

The importance of China, bearing in mind its growth forecasts for the next twenty years, is a very promising sign for the Blockchain community. China are striving to establish a seamless and regulated system of the Blockchain. The technology will revolutionise the way the Chinese economy runs. The power of this economy is hugely misunderstood. China will dwarf the rest of the world by 2050. By 2030 alone they will have overtaken the U.S. and be one third larger. These are projections without considering the revolutionary Blockchain technology.

Conclusion

For China to be a Blockchain based solution provider on the global front this will be very good for this super-power nation.

Asia.. The Most Extraordinary Success Story The World Has Ever Seen..How Does It Work?

Asian countries have led the way in the world in terms of the quickest progressions from poverty to wealth.

During the recent global crisis the Western world should have noted the methods certain Asian Tiger states adopted to achieve empowerment on such a grand scale, the world has never seen anything like it before in its entire history.

The scale of our misunderstanding about how the needs of emerging economies differ from those of developed ones is truly shocking.

tiger14.jpg

Phenomenal developmental success has been preceded by major crisis.

These nations re-learn and follow lows by phenomenal developmental success.

Humans can learn similar lessons. There are Asian countries that fail to interact with others.

North Korea, Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar, and Papa New Guinea.

All found at the bottom of the United Nations Human Development Index (HDI) rankings.

These countries have little to learn from, and are seldom studied in books or at University.

The reason for the failures of these sates are varied, but one common characteristic leaps out: they are all politically and economically introverted.

In varying degrees, these countries are re-learning the old-lesson of pre- 1978 China, pre-1989 Soviet Union and pre – 1991 India: that if a country does not trade and interact with the world, it is all but impossible to get ahead in the development game.

In terms of crisis and success stories, the countries above because of their failed interactions they remain stagnant. You can correlate humans in a similar way to that of countries.

Interaction is easier than ever before through the Web 2.0 – networking, sharing knowledge is more possible now than ever before with social media platforms LinkedIn, WordPress, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram Reddit and now phenomenons like SteemIt.

wordpress.png

Restricting learning about the failure to success for whole populations and not just individuals, is better focused on countries who have had to progress and adapt.

If you take Asia's two main offshore financial centres – Hong Kong and Singapore (a more accurate description of these two is port-offshore financial centres because of their dual role as shipping hubs.) As noted, much pointless and deeply misleading debate has been promoted over the years by comparing the development of, say, Hong Kong with that of China, or that of Singapore with Indonesia.

The world bank has been a prime offender.

Singapore lead-xlarge.jpg

My aim in further studies of mass economical success and failure lessons is to not add to the detritus. Offshore centres are not normal states. Around the world, offshore states like Hong Kong and Singapore compete by specialising in trade and financial services while enjoying lower structural overheads than other countries, which have larger more dispersed populations, and agricultural sectors that drag on productivity. Offshore centres' lower overheads mean they have a built in fiscal advantage. Yet they can never exist in isolation – they are in a strict sense parasitic, because they have to have their host or hosts to feed on.

With the omission of failed states and offshore centres, and the adjustment of the Island of Taiwan in politically incorrect but economically essential fashion – as a standalone state. Despite being recognised by most governments as a province of the People's Republic of China, Taiwan has functioned as a political and economic entity since 1949. Before that the Island was a colony of Japan for more than half a century. With a population of 23 million, Taiwan has a developmental story that is distinct from that of mainland China, and one which exhibits some striking and under-reported policy similarities. Therefore, I will separate this state when delving into the nine other significant east Asian economies: a north east Asian group of Japan and its two former colonies South Korea and Taiwan; a south east Asian group of Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, and the Philippines; and China and Vietnam.

taiwan.jpg

One of the reasons for interest in the East:

Lord Alan Sugar made his billions embracing Easterners throughout his life. His book 'What You See is What You Get' has more tales of his time spent in the East, where he set up multiple supply lines across many states, provinces and countries. Japan and Hong Kong appear in the pages of his book hundreds of times, South Korea is where many of his innovations were patented and produced. He provides in depth analysis about how he worked with business people from the East. It makes you wonder why there are not more SMEM's start-ups following his business model. AMS supply from the East enabled him to open OEMs and EMS in the UK. He made the most of what this wonderful world of trade, export and supply can do for businesses and entrepreneurs in the West.

The Ultimate Power

The Ultimate Power

by Daniel Bennett on May 04

Recently, I read that reading is good. The anti-library is the ultimate power.

There exists a point of power and intelligence that represents the high points of human potential.

It is the source of the greatest achievements and discoveries in history. It is an intelligence that is not taught in our schools nor analysed by professors, but almost all of us, at some point, have had glimpses of it in our own experience.

The content I have been reading has influenced my beliefs,  and incidences I document here in this article have happened to me during this time.

It can come to some when facing a deadline, the urgent need to solve a problem, a crisis of sorts. Or it can come to us as we work on a project. In any event,pressed by circumstances, we feel unusually energised and focused. Our minds become completely absorbed in the task before us.

This intense concentration sparks all kinds of ideas – they come to us as we sleep, out of nowhere we awaken out of our unconscious bursting with an idea or an anecdote.

At these times, other people seem less resistant to our influence; perhaps we are more attentive to them, or we appear to have a special power that inspires their respect.

We might normally experience life in passive mode, constantly reacting to this or that incident, but for these days or weeks we feel like we can determine events and make things happen.

We could express this power in the following way: Most of the time we live in an interior world of dreams, desires, and obsessive thoughts. But in this period of exceptional creativity, we are impelled by the need to get something done that has a practical effect.

We force ourselves to step outside our inner chamber of habitual thoughts and connect to the world, to other people, to reality. Instead of flitting here and there in a state of perpetual distraction, our minds focus and penetrate to the core of something real. At these moments, it is as if our minds – turned outward – are now flooded with light from the world around us, and suddenly exposed to new details and ideas, we become more inspired and creative.

Once the deadline has passed or the crisis is over, the feeling of power and heightened creativity generally fades away. We return to our distracted state and the sense of control is gone. If only we could manufacture this feeling, or somehow keep it alive longer . . . but it seems so mysterious and elusive.

The problem we face is that the form of power and intelligence is either ignored as a subject of study or is surrounded by all kinds of myths and misconceptions, all of which only add to the mystery. We imagine that creativity and brilliance just appear out of nowhere, the fruit of natural talent, or perhaps of good mood, or an alignment of the stars.

It would be immense help to clear up the mystery – to name this feeling of power, to examine its roots, to define the kind of intelligence that leads to it, and to understand how it can be manufactured and maintained.

Let us call this sensation mastery – the feeling that we have a greater command of reality, other people, and ourselves. Although it  might be something we experience for only a short while, for others – Masters of their field becomes a way of life (Such masters include – Leonardo Da Vinci, Napoleon Bonaparte, Charles Darwin, Thomas Edison, and Martha Graham, among many others.) And at the root of this power is a simple process that leads to mastery – one that is accessible to all of us.

This process can be illustrated in the following manner: Let us say we are learning the piano, or entering a new job where we must acquire certain skills. In the beginning, we are outsiders. Our initial impressions of the piano or the work environment are based on prejudgements, and often contain an element of fear. When we first study the piano the keyboard looks a little intimidating  – we don’t understand the relationships between the keys, the chords, the pedals, and everything else that goes into creating music. In a new job situation, we are ignorant of the power of relationships between people, the psychology of our boss, the rules and procedures that are considered critical for success. We are confused – the knowledge we need in both cases is over our heads.

Although we might enter these situations with excitement about what we can learn or do with our new skills, we quickly realise how much hard work there is ahead of us. The great danger is that we give into our feelings of boredom, impatience, fear, and confusion. We stop observing and learning. The process come to a halt.  

If, on the other hand, we manage these emotions and allow time to take its course, something remarkable begins to take shape. As we continue to observe and follow the lead of others, we gain clarity learning the rules and seeing how things work and fit together. If we keep practicing, we gain fluency; basic skills are mastered, allowing us to take us on  newer and more exciting challenges. We begin to see connections that were invisible to us before. We slowly gain confidence in our ability to solve problems or overcome weaknesses through sheer persistence.

At a certain point we move from student to practitioner. We try out our own ideas, gaining valuable feedback in the process. We use our expanding knowledge in ways that are increasingly creative. Instead of just learning how others do things, we bring our own style and individuality into play.

As years go by we remain faithful to the process, yet another leap takes place –  to mastery. The keyboard is no longer something outside of us; it is internalised and becomes part of our nervous system, our fingertips.

In our life, we now have a feel for the group dynamic, our current state. We can apply this feel to social situations, seeing deeper into other people and their strengths and anticipating their reactions. We can make decisions that are rapid and highly creative. Ideas come to us. We have learned the rules so well that we can now be the ones to break or rewrite them.

Helo App Store – WGN 2.0

Helo App Store!

WGN 2.0

 

There are many third party developers working on applications for the Helo App Store.

Mind Body Logic app is similar to Heka+ although with a wider range of features and functionality. There will be a choice of applications to install on your smartphone. You decide which app you like best. If you like a certain simple easy-to-use interface then you can choose that. If you like an application that gives you a plethora of useful information and data – Mind Body Logic could be the one for you. MBL is like a mixture of Wor(l)ds other apps Heka+, Helo VitaPulse, & Helo VitaEnergy all together in one place. It’ll give you a lot of information about your body, each reading making a deep analysis. It includes a complete dashboard with a message reminder system about some parameters that are not in the correct range for your body. You can also involve members of your family giving you a snapshot of your loved ones vital statistics and current wellness situation.

This is a vital application for the Helo device.

The concept designer Antonio De Rosa is very much excited and looking forward to going live with Mind, Body, Logic.

An important step for WCOR (Wor(l)d Global Network) is the revolutionary LIFELOG DNA.

This is a very important development for mobile self-health care. Helo LX, Helo LX + and Lifelog will marry together a comprehensive wealth of information, about, not only your static data and real time data about your health, but also all the things related to your DNA.

Thanks to a DNA kit that will be released matching the information. Your real-time bio-parameters, your static health, and all the information that comes from your own DNA.

We are going to see one of the most complete platforms ever designed to give an in depth analysis of our human bodies. Using various bio-metrics which can give you a complete snapshot of your health.

  • Dynamic display of the LifeLog DNA & Wellness Report
  • Personalised nutrition recommendations based upon genetically optimized macronutrient wheel. For example, supplement recommendations.
  • Integrations with Helo smart bands to track fitness. There will be a fitness video and coaching manual to accompany
  • Body vision morphing to track health progress
  • 150+ customisable fitness videos
  • App provides a powerful tool to share informatics with care providers (HIPAA compliant)

The application features a dashboard where the Helo device enables you to monitor the calories you have consumed during the day. You will be able to log your caloric intake and measure that up to the devices tracker of your steps and activities. You application collates and graphs the information, using your energy, caloric, and movement data. This will always be accurate information, having calibrated the device correctly, containing the vital statistics of your body.

There’s also a video showing you the correct form to have during exercises.

This is an exciting prospect for Helo LX, Helo LX + and Lifelog to marry together to give you a complete set of data, real-time data about your health but also all the things related to your DNA – your real-time bio-parameters of your health. With all the information that comes from your DNA. Antonio De Rosa thinks that we are going to see one of the most complete and exciting platforms to understand the body of each and every one of us. Connecting an infinite number of biometrics to give you a complete snapshot of your health.

You are profiling your genetics using your DNA, your relatives, your ancestry – everything is connected to your history. Everything based on your genetic history. This will be useful for you for information for who you are but just as much to assist your physician/Doctor if you want to avoid some health problem from occurring. It is a revolution in the concept of mobile health.

This is possible due to this marriage between the concept of DNA profiling and the technology capabilities of Helo LX and Helo LX+.

One application that is due for release, in the Helo App Store, bringing in a new era for fitness, is the Helo Fit Pro.

The Helo Fit Pro.

WGN launched the Helo Fit Pro at the CES at Las Vegas.

The feedback of the users is always of paramount importance to us and will help to improve our product day by day.

A bit of the future…

Coming up a report into the speech from our CEO Fabio Galdi. During his exciting address to the leaders he gave important information about the positioning of the company.
