The Foc.us headset uses transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) to improve users’ video game prowess. It transmits currents to the area around the forehead and is supposed to improve short-term memory for faster processing to help players get ahead in the game.

It claims to increase the plasticity of your brain and make your synapses fire faster. A small electric current (<2.05mA) is passed through the nodes, exciting your prefrontal cortex and giving you the edge in online gaming.

The Foc.us headset can be controlled manually using the touch sensor but to unlock and unleash the power you can connect via Bluetooth from a compatible mobile device. With the app, you can control the applied current and duration of each tDCS session.
