iPhone Mobile App that Reads your Brain Activity

MELON company from USA created a headband, very simple to use, that reads your brain activity. This device uses the electroencephalography to measure your focus level and process it to show the results in your iPhone.

Gain insight into how your mind works by tracking your focus during any activity you choose. Understand yourself. Learn differently. Imagine if you could see and understand the invisible activity of your brain. Could you transform how you work? Improve the way you meditate? Find a new way to be creative? Melon is a headband and mobile app duo that tracks and helps you improve your focus in relation to your activity, your environment, your emotions, and any other behavior you want to track.

For the developer community there are a Software Development Kit for iOS and Android apps, where it is possible to access to raw data, list of algorithms for different mental states and connect to and control other Bluetooth devices

This project is undoubtedly one step further to the future of BCI.
