Just a quick post on something worth checking out.
Canadian Tech company InteraXon will be releasing their EEG powered headset called Muse next year. You can read more about the device here.
They are currently raising funds from the tech community via IndieGoGo. The process basically involves making a pledge of a certain amount of dollars up front, in return for a Muse headset after the first production run.
More details can be found on the funding section of their website here
To quote from the indieGoGo crowdfunding website:
Introducing Muse, our brainwave-sensing headband.
It’s a comfortable, sleek, four-sensor headband that allows you to control applications, games, reduce stress, improve memory and concentration, and eventually control devices directly with your mind.
Muse measures your brainwaves in real-time. It sends those brainwaves to your smart phone or tablet showing you how well your brain is performing and also translates your brainwaves into instructions to interact with content on your iOS or Android device.
This device obviously offers some excellent opportunities for home automation, a post will be in the works exploring some possibilities.
