Muse S: Brain Sensing Headband

Meditation can take a bit of practice before it works and some people have a difficult time getting the hang of it. Thankfully enough, technology is now able to provide a solution even for problems such as this.

The Muse S is the successor of the Muse 2. These headbands are packed with sensors that measure brain activity, heart rate, breathing, and body movement in real-time. The Muse smartphone app will then give you cues based on these data to help you improve your meditative state.

Aside from helping you focus your meditation, it can also be used to improve sleep. Unlike the Muse 2, the Muse S uses a plush, stretchable fabric that is comfortable to sleep in. The app’s Go-to-Sleep section also provides various experiences that can help you shut-off your busy mind and prepare for a restful sleep.

Why We Think It’s Cool

  • The new breathable headband allows you to sleep with it on.
  • Long battery life.
  • It’s a big help to those who are just getting into meditation.

Potential Drawbacks

  • Kind of pricey. There are existing phone apps that come close to what Muse can provide.
