The EMOTIV INSIGHT headset keeps a tab on cognitive health in real-time. Sleek and wireless, it looks like something everyone will voluntarily or perhaps mandatorily be wearing in the future. According to PSFK, "Not only can [EMOTIV INSIGHT] tell you how your brain is changing in real-time, but it can also help you to monitor your mental cognitive well-being, as well as optimize your brain’s performance and overall fitness."

Designed by San Francisco-based Tan Le, the EMOTIV INSIGHT headset focuses on such cognitive efforts as attention, focus, engagement, interest, excitement, affinity, relaxation and stress. Safe to be used by all ages, the EMOTIV INSIGHT headset can also respond to basic mental commands such as push, pull, levitate and rotate.
