Pouring a beer is a typical happy hour activity. Yet pouring a beer from across a room with your mind? Sounds like magic.
Actually, it's not. Start-up Interaxon demonstrated this with its "Muse" headband, an electroencephalogram (EEG) headset that trains a user's mind to focus, relax, and perform some tasks.
The Muse is one of several wearables working at an obscure, but leading-edge, part of the industry: A device that interact directly with your mind.
The possibilities extend beyond just personal well being. Muse, for example, generates energy from a user's brainwaves, which are then used to manipulate objects like levitating chairs and controlling lights. Others alter a user's mood, or scan a person's vital signs.
