Muse is a wearable device in the form of a comfortable headband designed to sense the electrical rhythms of the brain (much like an EEG). The headband is coupled with a smartphone app that monitors the user’s brain electrical activity in real time. Users receive immediate feedback about their brain activity and guidance so that a “calm” or meditative pattern can be achieved. Use of this device over time is thought to help reduce distractibility, improve stress control and improve mood.
