Muse headset teaches meditation and lulls users to sleep

Brain activity is measured during meditation and sleep

Digital sleeping pills aid restorative sleep
More consumers are realising meditation is beneficial, but many give up because it’s difficult to master the mind. The Muse headset has been designed to tackle this pain point.

Via seven sensors attached to a headband, Muse passively measures brain activity, heart rate, breath and body movement. It's supported by an app which gives access to hundreds of meditations.

During a meditation session the headband gives real-time audio feedback based on brain activity, teaching users how to control their focus. In a neutral state, when the mind is neither distracted or deeply focused, the user hears the sound of quiet rain. If the mind starts to wander the rain gets louder, but if they move into a calm state they are rewarded with soothing nature sounds.

Advanced EEG technology is used to sense when the mind is active and distracted, neutral and at rest. The seven sensors passively measure brain signals, much like a heart rate monitor senses the heartbeat.

The headset can also be used to track other metrics, such as heart rate, breathing and sleep. It even uses digital sleeping pills: responsive stories that use smart-fade technology to help you fall and stay asleep.

The headband with a one-year subscription to more than 500 meditations costs €309.98 ($334.79, £265.39). A soft fabric headband and a more personalised sleep experience currently costs €419.98 ($453.60, £359.57.)
