Masahiro Kahata

Masahiro Kahata began making electrical systems with Vacuum tube over 55 years ago in Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan. In the 1960’s, he started to use the Transistor and ICs.
In the 1970’s, he made custom-made Stereo & PA systems with OpAmp, analog & digital I/O system with LEDs, etc. at Psychic Lab. He became more interested in UFO and psychotronics than electronics after having his own psychic experiences and encounters. Psychotronics stands for the interdisciplinary study of the interaction of matter, energy, and consciousness.
He also worked with companies like BUG, ASC II, American Biotech, Sony America, etc., which liked his technology and interests.
In 1983, he developed brain wave interactive I/O system with Lisa computer (first consumer computer
with human interface) and other computers such as Apple II, CPM, Rockwell.
In the mid 1980’s, Masahiro and Japan’s leading computer corporation “ASC II” created “ASC II
Laboratories” to research new human-computer interface designs as Chief Lab Researcher. After that ASC II corporation created “Microsoft Japan” which developed the world’s first Windows computer for NEC corporation, introduced in 1987.

Class 2024:

In 1988 Masahiro started Psychic Lab Inc. in Japan, which lead to the developing of what would become the Interactive Brainwave Visual Analyzer (IBVA).
At the same time, he started to develop the IBVA as a consumer product with Random electronics Design in Tokyo, Japan.
Since then IBVA has attracted wide interest from large pioneering corporations, some of which were also interested in psychic phenomena applications.
In 1989 Masahiro moved to New York, where he met many colleagues involved in paranormal fields such as UFOs, Psychic phenomena, Crop Circles, Mars anomalies, and ancient archaeological mysteries.
In New York Masahiro worked with American Biotech to develop Mac version bio feedback system.
In 1990 he start design and develop “UFO, Psychic, Science Cover Up analyze hyper media system” with IBVA interface.
In 1991 he started Psychic Lab Inc. in New York. Started to ship original IBVA system for OS6 in April 1991. In 1993 he pioneered the study of brainwave experiments in the crop circles in the United Kingdom.
Started IBVA Tech with an IBVA user in New York to market the IBVA as a business.
In 1998 IBVA won a product award at the MacWorld Convention in New York.
In 2000 he worked with Sony America to develop brain wave active game interface, however the project was canceled at half-point after Sep 11, 2001.
2001 Start “waveUFO” brain wave interactive art project with Mariko Mori was succeeded 2003-2011 at 10 different city and country. this event was open brain wave interactive art technology to many people in the world.
In May 2002 Masahiro became American Citizen at age 51. In the same year he quit IBVA Tech.
Since 2002 he developed a new function of coherence in the IBVA, which shows visually how to synchronize the two sides of the brain. He demonstrated this technology at a natural medical international conference in Cape Town, South Africa, in March 2004.
Started to develop Bluetooth IBVA system with Random electronics Design and Kuwatec, Tokyo Japan, 2002.

In Oct. 2009 Start to make UK, EROPE, EU distributor agreement with IBVA UK, Luciana Haill.
In Oct. 2014 Start brain-duino MetaVolutiON project with Metamind. Start ship brain-duino V0.1.
In Sep 2015 start NeuroFox with friend in Berlin.
In 2017, NeuroFox start manufacture new brain-duino in Germany. Open source project.
In 2020, work with NeuroSphere try develop consumer product use brain-duino.
In 2022, NeuroSphere start ship CE certificated consumer product.
2022 Nov: Start “waveUFO” brain wave interactive art update project with Mariko Mori
