When people refer to thinking caps it's usually to tell someone to think harder for the purpose of generating ideas, but what if there actually was a cap that helped users generate better ideas? This electrical thinking cap helps users think faster and come up with better ideas at extreme speeds.

Studies show that it is actually possible to help or hinder someone's thought process by the use of electrical currents. Depending on the direction and severity of the current, the ability shifting power varies. The electrical thinking cap is a headband with one electrode and another on top of the head; the electrodes pass the current through the brain and the side of the head.

In the experiment, it showed that with certain directional currents, the users brain activities were directly affected positively in some cases and negatively in others.
