San Francisco-based Dysonics, a startup with a foundation of 15 years of research at UC Davis, is now producing commercial products.
Dysonics is touted as the first "graduate" of the Engineering Translational Technology Center, a technology incubator at the UC Davis College of Engineering.
Dysonics, with 10 employees, has launched an iPhone app and is developing a broader range of products.
Dysonics aims to reproduce a natural sound experience delivered through headphones, via its "Rondo" app and "RondoMotion" sensor clipped to headphones.
The desired result: sounds appear to change location as you move your head.
The company is also working on generating its own content by recording live events on specialized media.
Officials say more than 45 startup companies have been spun off from UC Davis since 2005.
