Head Games

Could brainwaves be the wave of the future? You’ll be ready with Muse, the brain-sensing headband that could allow you to use your mind to control computers and other gadgets.


The sleek Muse works much like a heart rate monitor, measuring the brain’s activity with six embedded EEG sensors. Muse sends the readings via a wireless connection to a smartphone or tablet with a brain health system app that lets you control games, reduce stress, and improve memory and concentration.

Muse is the creation of InteraXon, a Toronto, Canada–based tech startup. During the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, InteraXon’s brain–computer interface technology enabled visitors to control the lights on Niagara Falls, the CN Tower, and Canada’s Parliament Buildings with their minds. For US$269 you can discover the power of yours.
