Muse Senser

  1. 1. MUSE THE BRAIN SENSING HEADBAND Muse is a flexible 6-sensor brainwave headband for everyday use. It's Specially designed to work with a family of applications with exercises for brain Health, fitness training, stress management, studying and many more. Muse allows you to get the most out of the mental skills you already have, and to do More with your mind then you ever thought possible.
  2. 2. The Muses were ancient Greek goddesses of Art and Science who inspired genius and creativity in mortals
  3. 3. INTRODUCING MUSE, OUR BRAINWAVE- SENSING HEADBAND. It's a comfortable, sleek, four-sensor headband that allows you to control applications, games, reduce stress, improve memory and concentration, and eventually to control devices directly with your mind.
  4. 4. Muse measures your brainwaves in real-time. It sends those brainwaves to your smart phone or tablet showing you how well your brain is performing; and also translates your brainwaves into instructions to interact with content on your iOS or Android device. Our brain sensing headband provides a real-time measurement of your brain's activity.
  5. 5. By connecting Muse to your Smartphone or tablet using Bluetooth, you are able to see this activity using one of our custom applications. You're accessing technology used by doctors and specialists for years, right in the comfort of your home. This technology measures mental states such as calmness or attention by digitizing brainwave signals. It cannot read thoughts. Muse is a non-invasive device.
  6. 6. Think of it as an inside-out relationship. Brainwaves travel from the brain to the headband but it isn't possible for the headband to channel any inputs into the brain. Taking your pulse might tell you how fast your heart is beating, but cannot control your heart rate. A heart rate monitor might tell you how active your body is but not whether you were jogging or riding a bike nor tell you to do a specific activity to change your heart rate. Muse and our Brain Health System only work when you control and command them with the power of your mind. We can tell you how active your brain is, but not if you're thinking about the color blue.
  7. 7.  Why should I care about seeing my brainwave activity? Effective brain functioning requires flexibility and stability. People constantly tell us they "can't turn off" their minds, and this can have a tremendous impact on a person's well-being. Enhancing brain flexibility allows you to shift brain activity to match what you are doing, like concentrating at work or de-stressing before you go home. Having a more resilient or stable brain allows you to bounce back from unhealthy activities and experiences - like lack of sleep, drinking, injury etc. Seeing your brainwave activity allows you to train, condition and enhance your mind.
  8. 8.  Is Muse splash or waterproof? Muse was not designed to be a splash or waterproof device. Because of the electrical wiring inside the headband, we recommend that you do NOT submerge it in water or keep it in an area where it would be at risk of coming into contact with a large amount of water. We cannot commit to the spatial ability or control of Muse after it has had contact with water or liquid of any kind.  Muse is designed with dry sensors, and does not require gel.  Currently, Muse is not a certified medical EEG device
  9. 9.  Why are you creating new manufacturing processes for Muse?  Our first headband iterations used rigid parts typical in most EEG designs. This is something manufacturers can produce easily. As we continued to lock down our final design and tested the headband on hundreds of heads with varying shapes and sizes we decided to make some big modifications to improve the design, fit and connectivity.  This new design -- working with parts that are softer, more flexible and have better conductive properties requires a whole rethink on manufacturing -- is one that no manufacturer has tackled so far. And that takes time. Retooling. New processes. New thinking. EEG is a very finicky technology so we wanted to take extra time with the design to ensure our customers didn't have to fiddle with it too much so they could dive into the apps and experiences we're designing.
  10. 10. working Your brain creates brainwave activity every moment of your life, day and night, awake or asleep. Each state is accompanied by specific brain wave patterns. For example, brains of people in relaxed states create gentle, slow- moving alpha waves, while those engaged in intense concentration generate quick, jagged beta waves
  11. 11. Types of brainwaves Muse measure:-  Muse measures brain activities and frequencies that vary depending on your state of mind. There are five main brainwave bands that Muse detects at any given time. Each brainwave band occurs in different proportions, and Muse measures the changes in those proportions when something happens. The five bands are:  Delta waves which are most present during sleep.  Theta waves which are associated with sleep, very deep relaxation, and visualization.  Alpha waves which occur when relaxed and calm.  Beta waves which occur when, for example, actively thinking or problem-solving.  Gamma waves which occur when involved in higher mental activity and consolidation of information.
  12. 12. This brainwave data may look like it’s just couple of squiggly lines, but our algorithms (and our developers) see a wealth of information
  13. 13.  Muse uses sensors to pick up the tiny electrical outputs generated by your brain’s activity. As you shift between states like concentration and relaxation, Muse’s algorithms detect the subtle changes in your brain and show you those changes in real time, just like a heart rate monitor can provide information about your physical activity.  These signals can be used in a number of ways. Right now, you can see your brainwaves in action and use that information to improve and strengthen your mind. In the future, InteraXon is looking to use these brainwaves to interact with devices in the real world--devices that respond to your thoughts like turning off your smart phone when you are asleep or turning off the TV.
  14. 14. Muse sits across your forehead like a headband, and rests behind your ears like a pair of glasses. When properly worn, the EEG (electroencephalography) sensors on the front of the band make contact on your forehead, and the reference sensors on the arms rest on the backs of your ears. Muse connects wirelessly to your devices via Bluetooth. Once Muse is on, you’ll hardly notice it at all.
  15. 15. PEOPLE WHO INVENTED AND DESIGNED IT: Intera Xon is an interdisciplinary team of artists & engineers, neuroscientists & designers. Our founders have been working with this technology for almost a decade. The team started to come together in 2007, and since then we’ve been working to make brain-computer interfaces an accessible, affordable reality.* * * *
  16. 16. MUSE HEADBAND TECH SPECS  Flexible, adjustable, lightweight headband with 4 sensors - including two on the forehead and two behind the ears  Communicates over Bluetooth and is compatible with iOS (iPhone, iPad, iTouch), Android, Mac OS (OS X), Windows and Linux  SDK (Software Development Kit) included for the platforms listed above  Open communication standard to allow people to write their own device drivers, so that Muse can be used with software platforms not covered by the SDK  Rechargeable battery (charge via micro-USB jack, just like most cell phones). Lasts for 5 hours of use.
  17. 17. MUSE: The Brain-Sensing Headband that lets you control things with your mind. See your brain in action. See how it performs. Improve it over time. In the future, use your thoughts to play games, operate appliances and so much more.
