My very first introduction to brain sensors was a distinctly furry one. The sensors involved a pair of electrical cat ears made by a Japanese firm called Neurosky. Perched on your head, the ears would move and wiggle in accordance with your thoughts or feelings—or that’s how the YouTube video explains it, anyway.
I recently came across another sensor that claimed to perform a similar brain-sensing task. It’s designed by a Canadian company called InteraXon, which is running an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to get the project off the ground. They’re calling the headband the “Muse” and describing it as a chic brainwave reader for your forehead.
