EMOTIV Insight Headset

This headset from EMOTIV is the basic headgear you need to read your mind (if you don’t already know what you’re thinking). Suited for medical purposes as an advanced brainwear for performance and wellness tracking through mobile interfaces. Insight is a 5-channel EEG device that allows the user to track his/her brainwaves and translate them into meaningful yet simplified, understandable data. Done by attaching sensory polymers to specific parts of the head and by concentrating on certain actions say, “Draw a circle”. The brainwaves generated then will be translated onto a mobile interface. EMOTIV states Insight can have medical benefits for users such as helping people with ADHD improve their concentration. Utility is well-thought out but the aesthetics of the device makes Insight look like an alien particle latched onto your head to be honest.
