Building off our recent novelty science kit announcement, we’ve also seen blog posts, tweets, and emails on our Psychology category, specifically the Astral Sounds CD and Kirlian Imaging Device, so we decided to address this issue now as well.
First, a little background. Back in the 60s, 70s, and 80s, Edmund Scientifics carried a selection of “psychology” products, including Astral Sounds (page 116 of our 1981/1982 catalog, for example), Kirlian photography kits (see our Popular Science ad from 1975), and subliminal audio tapes to stop smoking/lose weight (page 54 of our Fall 1982 catalog.) Over the last 5 or 10 years, we’ve received a number of requests from long-time customers looking for items similar to these, so we selected a handful to include in our recent catalogs.
With that, we’ve decided to transition these products to the X-treme Geek category on our site. This category is a selection of popular products from the X-treme Geek catalog, as a way of introducing our sister company to Edmund customers. (Similarly, there is a Science by Edmund Scientifics category on the X-treme Geek site.)
We would like to thank everyone for their feedback on these products. We are so very lucky to have such a passionate group of customers that hold us to a high standard. Companies work tirelessly to get the kind of customers we have, so we want to work tirelessly to make sure we’re living up to the standard you expect.
