Brain scanners have been a hot topic for quite a while - great advances have been made. And now Hitachi has taken the technology one step further. They've developed a light weight, walkman-styled, personal brain scanner. The headset comes with a controller that fits on the wrist to let users monitor their mental activity.

Will this become the next must-have among the techno-savvy? Could be.

Implications - Today's tech-savvy consumers are increasingly looking for products that help them work more effectively and productively. Personal scanners let users keep tabs on their brain during the day; this data may affect how they schedule work appointments, approach difficult tasks and manage day to day stress.
