Developed as a biohacking wearable, the Humm headband claims to make users temporarily smarter by stimulating the part of the brain that is responsible for memory and learning. Designed for gamers and esports players, the Humm headband uses electrical stimulation to delivers signals to the frontal cortex. According to the team at Humm, this innovation will hopefully provide a cognitive edge to gamers in a way that no other tech is capable of.
The tech driving the Humm headband is a new form of non-invasive brain stimulation, a field with over 20 years of clinical research and a strong safety track record. Prior to this game-enhancing headband, the technology has been used to treat conditions such as depression and insomnia, as well as provide various cognitive benefits.
