Can’t Focus? Melon EEG Headband Gets Inside Your Head to Help You Concentrate

 |  |  |  |  June 8, 2013

Are your thoughts usually all over the place? Do you have difficulty keeping your thoughts at bay? Then you might need something like the Melon EEG headband to help you get your thoughts in order.

Spelled out, EEG stands for “electroencephalography”, which is the act of measuring brain activity along your scalp. This is basically what the Melon headband does when you wear it and go about your daily routine. Apart from just recording your brain activity, Melon’s special algorithms translates this data into a measure of focus.

On its Kickstarter project page, the Melon wireless headband app is described as being “built to be worn while engaging in a variety of activities – from working, to studying, playing sports, dancing, practicing an instrument, programming, painting, or doing yoga.” The system boasts of turning focus into a “measurable” and “understandable” variable – something that I’m sure a lot of people would be interested in.

Aside from determining your level of focus, Melon also provides personalized feedback and insights on how its wearer can increase and improve his or her focus. It even offers suggestions for activities like origami to achieve that purpose.

The Melon headband and app is currently up for funding through June 13 on Kickstarter, where a minimum pledge of $99(USD) will get you one of your very own.
