Synapse is a mind-controlled helmet that is designed using 3D-printing materials and able to change in shape as well as color depending on the wearer's personal brainwaves. This allows the smart wearable to be fully personalized instantly without the consumer having to program the device. Instead the helmet is edited live, altering in sync to the wearer's own emotions and feelings.

Wearable tech is quickly moving forward to adapt to the wearer's thoughts and brainwaves to create a much more personalized and intimate tech experience. The Synapse helmet created by Behanaz Farahi is a example of this, with a device that reacts intuitively to the wearer's neural system. The helmet features an array of LED lights and swirled bands that change in response to the user's emotions.
