Beamz Interactive, Inc. Provides General Shareholder Update

Focus on Education, Health Care & Families With Young Children

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Nov. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Beamz Interactive, Inc. (OTCQB: BZIC), a leading developer of state-of-the-art interactive music products, today is providing shareholders with an update on its current state of progress in the areas of education and healthcare, the primary market focus established for the second half of 2014 and 2015. Since June 2014, Beamz has made key announcements regarding international distribution partnerships, content expansion and new technology developments in its education and therapy offerings. The following summarizes these significant developments.

"During the third calendar quarter of 2014, in addition to significant progress with our direct school and senior care efforts, we continued to aggressively sign leading assistive technology resellers to expand our global reach in the education and healthcare markets. These recent additions included Spectronics and Link Assistive Technologies in Australia, Mentis in New Zealand, Dagesh Assistive Technology in Israel, Aroga Technologies in Canada and Westminster in the U.S., taking our total count up to more than 20 worldwide resellers supporting and promoting the Beamz education and healthcare product offering," said Beamz Interactive CEO Charlie Mollo. "We also launched a new Android app, which has received two 4.5 start ratings (out of a possible 5 stars), and features our expanding app library of about 250 interactive music songs and videos. In addition, we significantly expanded our content offering with a family of early learning interactive music videos, a golden oldies song bundle for the senior care market, a series of special needs education lesson plans, a series of therapy protocols for senior care, hospital, rehab and other therapy applications, and the establishment of a partnership to develop therapy Protocols for Traumatic Brain Injury, which we expect to be completed around year end. Finally, we also launched a new website with a broad range of new messaging and video content highlighting our new company tagline: 'Enriching learning, therapy and fun with inclusive, interactive music.' 'The combined effect of all of these developments position us for significant growth."

  • Beamz completed a series of Lesson Plans for Special Education teachers to use with the Beamz in various special education kindergarten and grammar school classrooms. These lesson plans are expected to be rolled out in the fourth quarter of 2014.
  • Beamz and Lekotek completed a family of activity guides for children with special needs and their families. These activity guides are included with our special needs family product (see www.thebeamz.com/Lekotek).
  • Beamz partnered with several industry leaders to expand its offering to include specialized access methods that work with the Beamz.

Early Learning Content

  • Beamz Interactive partnered with award-winning early education and video content developers GiggleBellies (www.GiggleBellies.com) and The Learning Station (http://learningstationmusic.com) to create a new early learning collection of fun and educational interactive music videos for pre-school and grammar school children.These interactive music videos can be used on a PC or MAC computer, the Beamz iOS or Android apps, and/or with the Beamz controller.

Therapy

  • Beamz Interactive completed a research study with faculty members at Temple University, resulting in the creation of 15 protocols for therapists to provide various therapeutic benefits to seniors and other parties using Beamz. We believe these protocols, when combined with the recent completion of our golden oldies interactive song bundles, position us to pursue the approximately 40,000 senior nursing and assisted living facilities in the U.S. alone, as well as in-home senior care, senior centers, rehab centers and hospitals.
  • Beamz established a partnership with Music Works to develop a series of Therapy Protocols to support individuals with Traumatic Brain Injury.

Android App

  • The Beamz new Android app provides a leading edge interactive music experience for young children, families, early education and special needs applications that can now be used by the more than 1 billion Android device users.

"We are very pleased with our progress this quarter and continue to discover new ways to use our technology to positively impact the world of education and therapy," added Mollo. "Music enhances creativity, and imagination while helping with language development, reasoning and stress reduction. It has been proven that early-music experiences enhance children's ability to learn as well as their coordination and mental development, and that music aids seniors with their awareness and mental activity as well as therapy. It is our plan to get our products in the hands of educators, senior care providers and therapist worldwide."

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive.

This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one b...
