Doser is a program used to designed to give the end users “binaural beat doses" to "sync their brain waves." This music can be played on media player that takes only DRG files like MP3 player. To experience this the person uses their headphones or I-pods and darkens the room and listens to the tracks for sometime till they start feeling different. Some music can help you dose off , others may make you feel relaxed and still others may get you stimulated. It is still early days for the evolution of I-dosing.
