International CES 2014: Muse and Gaming Innovations

Interaxon's Muse was one of my favorite technologies at International CES 2014. Sensors in the headband measure EEG, detecting five individual bands of your brainwaves and measuring changes while you focus on different things. These changes are converted into digital signals that Muse sends to a Tablet, Smartphone or PC. If your mind focuses, you see and hear calm, lapping waves on a beach. If your mind wanders you see and hear thunder and cloudy skies. Muse launched at last year's CES and raised $300,000 on Indiegogo, then $6 million dollars in funding in August. They also received the CES Innovations 2014 Design and Engineering Award.
