The Muse band aims to enable users to focus their attention on simple commands in order to make their electronic devices do things.

The Muse headband, made by the interdisciplinary team at InteraXon, is currently seeking funding on Indiegogo to bring brain-controlled computing to the mass market. While wearing the brainwave-sensing headband, users can focus their attention on simple commands to control their electronic devices, apps, and games.

Muse sits across your forehead and rests behind your ears. EEG sensors make contact on your forehead, while reference sensors rest on the back of your ears. Muse connects wirelessly to your devices via Bluetooth and uses the sensors to pick up the electrical outputs generated by your brain’s activity, detecting any subtle changes.

InteraXon is looking to use these brainwaves to interact with devices in the real world–devices that respond to your thoughts like turning off your smart phone when you are asleep or turning off the TV.  But just as important is how seeing your brainwaves can help you learn more about yourself and improve yourself while strengthening your brain.

Early birds can get their hands on a Muse headband for a pledge of $135 and you can learn more about it from the video below:
