Mind Over Matter

Brain-related innovations demonstrate the power of the mind

Implications - It's amazing what our brains can do, and it's apparent in the number of innovations that depend on brainwaves to function. Designers and scientists are getting ever more creative when it comes to products that rely on mind control and use brain frequencies to perform an act or provide information. From mind-controlled apparel to concentration-improving headbands, these creative devices demonstrate the possibilities of applying the brain to design and innovation.
