“On the table in front of me in a New York hotel lobby lies a gadget from Halo Neuroscience that looks like a cross between high-end headphones and a crown of thorns…Halo isn’t a crazy, out-of-the-blue breakthrough. It relies on transcranial electrical stimulation (tES), a technique that can trace its roots as far back as the 19th century and has become a hot field of neuroscience research in the 21st century. The electric pulses work only when combined with rigorous training…
And so Halo is introducing a legitimate, well-funded, well-designed neuro-stimulation product to consumer markets. There’s no telling whether it will be the ultimate winner in the space, but it seems clear that Halo or some company will popularize tES—at least for athletes and for those seeking to improve memory and cognition.
And then, what will happen when the masses get their hands on it?”
