A third crowdfunded brain-tracking headband, also due out at the end of this year, is Interaxon's Muse, which raised $287,000 on Indiegogo back in December 2012 and was subsequently on display at CES. The Toronto-based company is offering the device for pre-order for $200. It has four sensors and also connects to devices via Bluetooth. These three devices all seem to share a common market streategy: Start with biofeedback, in Muse's case a tablet and smartphone Integrated Brain Health system, and then develop the into a mental controller for apps and devices. The company has tested a number of applications, including a real life version of a brain-based game featured on an old episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation.
