Check out the Muse Headband. I had no idea that this product existed. I was passing by the Muse booth, last week at CE Week, in NYC, when the headband caught my eye.
I asked one of the executives at the booth, Ben Nachman, head of sales, Muse, Toronto, what this product was all about.
He said, “Most people don’t know if they are meditating correctly. Even meditation teachers can’t really tell if their students are meditating the proper way.”
Muse is a brain sensing headband. It works with the Calm app. It give users real-time biofeedback of their mental state during practice. It has 7 sensors, and collects data in 4 channels. It comes with a regular micro-USB cable, and a simple, 10 pages “getting started” manual. The battery lasts for up to 5 hours of use.
When your mind is calm, you hear calm winds. When your mind is active, the winds blow harder. The goal is to teach your mind to stay calm.
Retail price on Amazon is $248.54.
I have no idea why, but Ben gave me a unit to try out. I’m going to start later this week. Stay tuned.
