Muse, The Brain Sensing Headband: Actualized overview of products
It has been shown to be a useful complement to many treatments that address both different psycho-social states as well as daily stresses. To many of us with our bustling life, it is not a matter of course for us to meditate, nor do we have the feeling that we have the moment to devote ourselves to it.
Muse, the headgear for mediation, has come a long way since we last used it. This is a unit that records brain wave by means of electro-encephalography (EEG) and transfers the information wireless to a portable unit for analysis. Much of the changes since the last alteration contain, but are not restricted to the actual layout and the way the application leads the users through each meeting.
Using the application, it guides you through easy headgear calibrations and then starts a meeting in which it immediately transports you to a place of your choosing using ambient noise. Against this backdrop, as your spirit begins to walk during the retreat sessions, the shower becomes more tumultuous, indicating to the users to concentrate on their breathing.
As you concentrate, you will get more "rest points", and in the end you will be able to view the entire sessions information. As the headgear is fully reclinable, I found that it took a few attempts to get a good grip on my hide to get a clear beacon.
With the free Muse application only a few minutes for downloading and setting up, and once the Bluetooth engine is up, the application leads the users through each stage to a better experience. Muse's graphical design is easy and esthetically appealing. Of course I am an angsty man, and I have tried many a time to come into mediation.
One of the things that was different when using Muse was the capacity to actually receive real-time feed-back during the retreat and finally get a point value for the entire course of the sessions. In essence, Muse played the role of a meditator and made it a pleasant and not a duty to meditate. In addition, the application offers the possibility to switch off the guide if the users feel at ease or find it too disturbing.
I only had a few comments about the actual shape of the device, because there is only one headband knob that is both a professional and a scammer. Among the muse' unparalleled features are the company's research engineering capabilities. It has a collection of software for extracting and visualizing unprocessed audio from the Muse headband and enables easy application of the latest technology in the field of digitized music.
I was fascinated when I first saw Muse at Pepcom's Holiday Spectacular in SF. Whilst I am not an authority in mediation, I have the feeling that it is definitely a worthwhile experience to try the muse.
