Get your brain in shape with Emotiv Insight headset

If Kickstarter is anything to judge by, people really want to train their brains and use them to control stuff by thought alone.
In only a few days, Emotiv has raised nearly half a million dollars, far more than its campaign goal of $100,000, to develop a “neuroheadset” called the Insight.
The Insight is a wireless 5-channel headset that records brainwaves so users can allegedly improve brain performance and turn data into commands to interact with computers, operating everything from apps to wheelchairs.
Emotiv is behind the popular EPOC neuroheadset, and the Insight is a significant redesign. It’s simpler and lighter, and looks more like a bird perching on your scalp than an ungainly squid.
