More on Sensory Deprivation Tanks
a professor at Bowling Green State University builds his own sensory deprivation tank. (
Transcendence Device)

not a new idea:

experiments in sensory deprivation were going on in the early 1950s. John C. Lilly devised the first 'isolation tank' in 1954 for his research on neurophysiology. then in the 60s he began to experiment in the tanks with LSD, etc. etc. (he also did some crazy stuff with dolphins in attempt to establish dolphin-human communication)


the Samadhi Tank Company has been manufacturing and selling isolation tanks since 1972.
