The Audio Shield invention to change signal processing education

It has been announced by DocJava that it is raising funds via a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter to finish the development of their revolutionary educational technology. The company set out to raise $4,000 on Kickstarter and ended up raising $3,000 on the first day. The Audio Shield is their latest invention that is going to change the signal processing education market.

Called Social Entrepreneurship, the primary goal of the invention is to help improve STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Maths) education.

Dr. Lyon, President of DocJava and Electrical and Computer Engineering Director at Fairfield University says: "Hands-on learning is the best way I know of to get people to learn. Students are already treated to expensive educations and sky-high books and lab fees. My goal is to bring engineering education to the masses."

Dr. Lyon goes on to say that, "funding of this project will enable mass production of hardware that enables the delivery of software and effects to many. My students all get a free audio shield and uno clones at the beginning of the term, with an option to purchase at the end of the term."

DocJava was set up in Milford, CT on 29th October 1999 and is owned by Douglas Lyon. It has enjoyed early traction with its last product called The Arduino DSP Shield, which sold over 400 units during its first production run.
