Does the photo above look like something out of an 1980′s futuristic science fiction novel? In reality the future is with us today in the form of the Muse brain sensing headband and the device is being used by Yale and Harvard university to improve brain fitness.

We first heard of this technology at the Wisdom 2.0 Summit. it seems to sit in the very popular sweet spot that lies between the mix of wearable technology and mindfulness. The product is increasingly available in stores across the USA.

MUSE is a technology that wants to help you meditate, exercise your brain, and uses sensors to measure how your brain is reacting while you do it. Its main goal is to be a meditation companion according to MUSE website:

Muse is the first tool in the world that can give you accurate, real-time feedback on what’s happening in your brain while you meditate. It provides motivational challenges and rewards to encourage you to build a regular practice.

How do you feel using technology to help your meditation? Do you think technology and mindfulness go hand in hand? Do you use any device or app like this one? Fancy giving one a test drive?
