'Muse' helps you become more aware of what your brain is doing, so you can make changes in real-time

It was probably inevitable. People have been wearing physical vital sign monitors for a decade to track activity level, heart rate, blood sugar and all manner of other metrics that contribute to overall health and behavior change. It's not that far a leap to wearing a monitor for what's going on in your brain.

Muse is the first device to make that leap. It's a headband reminiscent of the aluminum-band headphones from the original Walkman that you wear while performing focused-attention exercises on your tablet or smartphone. The audio and video feedback loop tracks your brain activity during that time to give you realistic metrics of your stress, attention, focus and mood during the exercise. Muse then saves the results to a private database so you can track the results over time.
