Hi, I just came across this concept from a video my friends sent me:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PZcgUEkBIX0

We both had a good laugh at it, assuming that it was a spoof of media over exaggeration about drugs (like brass-eye or summart), however after googling 'I-dose' I suddenly realised it's not a joke and people are legitimately worried about kids getting high off sound. I even found an arcticle on it, by the kings of media overexaggeration: the Daily Mail.

Anyway I just wanted someone to clarify whether this is truely serious, or I've just falled victim to some elaborate joke.

Fairly sure it's bullshit, wait a sec and I'll find a legit source.

Edit:
This is as good as I can find at the moment.

I've done it. It's not like taking the drug that each file corresponds to at all though. I found it pretty relaxing actually like a white noise generator.

It's bullshit really.

It might work on some people, with the right headphones, but it's never done anything for me. The science behind it sounds legit, though.

The science behind it is complete BS, and whoever designed it has no idea how drugs affect the brain.

What's this about turning it off quickly can cause nausea, tunnel vision and in severe cases, brain damage?

More BS.

I hope to god this becomes the British tabloids new M-kat, the idea of a 6-month witch-hunt against abuse of soundwaves is the recipe for a good chuckle.

I meant the use of a different pitch in each ear with a hertz drop that can affect the brain. Not the actual effects of I-doser.

Okay, I gave it a go and aside from feeling like a bit of a prick trying it: nothing happened, aside me feeling marginally more relaxed but I'm pretty sure I'd feel like that anytime I layed back in my chair, shut my eyes and listened to something.

Edit: just to note that, that was my experiance of experimenting with an I-dose of 'Cannabis'

^ I tried it when it first came out, years ago and went through a few of them including cannabis, LSD and cocaine, and they all do the same thing. (nothing, other than what you mentioned)

I tried it 10 times, it never worked at all.

It relaxes you a little bit, but it didn't do anything else.
