Brain Scanning Headband Improves Your Concentration Melon is a headband and mobile app that tracks and helps wearer’s improve their focus in relation to any activity, environment or behavior that they want to track. The wireless brain-sensing device uses EEG (electroencephalography) to measure brain activity, which is interpreted by the company’s algorithms to detect focus. This data is then analyzed to give users personalized feedback on how to improve. The project, which has successfully been backed through crowdfunding site Kickstarter, aims to go beyond the numbers and scores given by many health tracking apps and move towards actionable insights and understanding. The company is also planning to open the product’s API so members of the developer and hacker communities can come up with creative uses for the data and technology.
