    The Melon headband and companion app allows wearers to track, monitor and understand their mental focus during a range of activities. The headband measures brain activity using EEG and algorithms detect focus levels, using the data to give personalized feedback. Users can input external factors via the app to discover how time of day, weather conditions and environment all influence their ability to generate and sustain focus. Melon surpassed its Kickstarter target in June 2013, and is due to ship to backers in Q4 2013.

    Developed by Japanese product design brand Neurowear and unveiled in March 2013, the Mico headset consists of headphones and an EEG reader that rests on the wearer’s forehead and senses neural activity. Brain signals allow the device to detect the user’s mood (such as sleepy, stressed or focused), which is shown on an LED earpiece display. The headphones relay the information to a mobile running the Mico app and mood-appropriate music is selected from the database.

    Shadow
    App allows users to record, share and analyze dreams

    Surpassing its Kickstarter funding target during October 2013, Shadow is an app that allows users to record and remember their dreams. An escalating alarm clock wakes the user up gently, increasing the likelihood of dream recall, and the app prompts the user to record the dream via audio or text. Tracking dream and sleep patterns allows curious users to make connections between daily life and dream habits. Each entry is saved to a journal and can be anonymously pushed to the cloud, creating a global database of dreams, which shows users the sentiment and dream content of other participants around the world.

    PIP
    Stress-sensing video games help players relax

    PIP.png

    http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/484175508/the-pip-a-biosensor-that-helps-you-relax-through-p

    Created to help consumers reduce stress levels, PIP is a wireless biosensor developed in Ireland that reached its funding target on Kickstarter in July 2013. Users hold the device while playing a game (synced via Bluetooth to a monitor or smartphone), and it captures a Galvanic Skin Response from their fingertips in real-time. To succeed in a racing game for example, the player must be more relaxed than their competitor, as characters respond aversely to stress signals. The creators will release a Software Development Kit so others can develop apps.

    Canadian technology company OMsignal has announced plans to launch a compression shirt which can monitor an individual’s heart rate, breathing and movement. Sensors woven into the fabric collect data which is then sent to the wearer’s cell phone, where they can track and analyze information. Fully machine washable, the shirt is designed to be worn underneath garments or at the gym.
