Toronto (PRWEB) October 22, 2012
InteraXon, makers of cutting edge brainwave-enabled products and applications, today debuted the latest brain sensing headband, Muse. Muse is a brain sensing headband that allows users to control applications ranging from gaming to education to memory training to music using the power of their brains. The device is being made available today for pre-order on crowd-funding platform, Indiegogo.
Centering around the growing movement in wearable computing devices, Muse is a wearable headband that tracks the effectiveness of the brain by measuring how well brainwaves react in real-time, delivering those insights through mobile and web applications. The device presents as a flexible, slim headband that connects wirelessly to your smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth technology and reads your brainwaves using sensors built into the headband.
“Over the past few years, our team has been working tirelessly gathering user data in the product development and design phases. Today we’re extremely excited to debut Muse and help put brainwave-enabled technology in the hands of thousands of people”, said Ariel Garten, co-founder and CEO of InteraXon. “From the very beginning, our goal has been to make this technology accessible and affordable for consumers looking to try it for the first time. We appreciate everyone contributing to our campaign and helping make that a reality.”
Key product features include:
● Flexible and lightweight headband with 4 sensors
● Bluetooth enabled device that connects wirelessly to iPhone, iPad, Android, Mac, PC and Linux
● Free development SDK for all available platforms
● Rechargeable battery that lasts for 10 hours of continuous use
As part of this announcement, InteraXon has set a goal of raising $150,000 on Indiegogo to aid in funding manufacturing of the headband. Muse is available for an early bird price of $120.00, plus $15.00 shipping and handling for a limited time only. Contributors can acquire a single Muse headband for $150.00, plus $15.00 shipping and handling throughout the life of the Indiegogo campaign. More information on special rewards is available on the campaign site here.
Like with touch and voice technology that came before, brain-computer interface technology is on course to become a major part of our everyday lives and give consumers the ability to meaningfully improve their minds, health and what they know about themselves.
In the coming weeks, InteraXon will be accepting contributions to their Indiegogo campaign, which starts October 22nd and runs through December 7th. Delivery of devices is currently set for Spring 2013.
