Muse Headband. First of all, it is a wearable brain sensing headband. Hence, pedometers and heart rate monitors were yesterday. Muse measures and analyses brain activity. Altogether, the brain sensing band is supposed to help with meditation.
Heart rate, number of steps, kilometres travelled and altitude metres, calories consumed – all these measured and calculated more or less precisely by people today with wristbands, watches and smartphone apps. Now it’s the turn to measure the brain, thanks to InteraXon Muse.
It’s early days, so there aren’t that many different exercises. But don’t worry. The manufacturer, a company called InteraXon, is going to roll out more and more. They bought a content creation lab called Meditation Studio in July 2018, so it’s fair to say they plan on making sure there’s plenty of quality material in the pipeline for Muse 2.
There are so many different types of meditation and apps to go along with them. It can be confusing to figure out which one to use. On top of that, it can sometimes be hard to stick with your meditation schedule even though you know its what you need to do to feel better. We all occasionally face a similar roadblock when it comes to working out consistently.
Muse is a wearable brain sensing headband. It measures your brains activity using EEG (Electroencephalography) sensors. The app that comes with the device converts the EEG signals into audio feedback to the user via the built-in headphones. The headband helps you to reach a deep guided relaxation state by playing different sounds to you while you meditate.
