Emerging consumer electronics to monitor and enhance brain functioning

Ten Inno­v­a­tive Ideas in Con­sumer Elec­tron­ics (arti­cle by Bloomberg Busi­ness­week report­ing on CES 2013):

Human mon­i­tor­ing
The human body can be mon­i­tored, too, allow­ing us all to per­form bet­ter and live longer. Heart­Math makes heart mon­i­tors that are worn daily and report results online directly to doctors…

Brain con­trol
By mon­i­tor­ing brain­waves and con­vert­ing them into energy, it is pos­si­ble for humans to move phys­i­cal objects sim­ply by con­cen­trat­ing. Startup Inter­axon is launch­ing a $200 brain-sensing head­band called the Muse. Ini­tially it is being used as a video game con­troller, but there are plenty of pos­si­ble busi­ness appli­ca­tions for peo­ple who want to move objects effortlessly.”
