Wearable computers now measure brain fitness

Just as wearable heart monitors are starting to reach the market, Emotiv Insight is a new Kickstarter for a wireless headset that monitors your brain activity and translates it into meaningful data you can understand. The goal of tracking is to help wearers improve your attention, focus, and relaxation, by understanding when you are feeling certain ways. In addition, the neuroheadset can understand and decipher basic mental commands such as push, pull, levitate, rotate and even commands that are harder to visualize such as disappear. It also detects facial expressions such as blinks, winks, frown, surprise, clench and smile. While this particular headset seems kind of clunky, it's easy to see how in short time, we may be seeing this kind of tech integrated in our smartphones or smart glasses.
