MindWave EEG for Tablets and Smartphones

The new MindWave mobile headset from NeuroSky measure your attention and meditation degree and is compatible with iPhone, iPad and Android phones and tablets. Probably it is the research EEG headset available less expensive in the market (about 100€). The new bio-sensor chip (TGAM) makes possible to have a clear brainwave signal to get EEG signals.


The device consists of a headset, an ear-clip, and a sensor arm.  The headset’s reference and ground electrodes are on the ear clip and the EEG electrode is on the sensor arm, resting on the forehead above the eye in the FP1 position. It uses a single AAA battery with 8 hours of battery life and it uses Bluetooth to send the data to the mobile devices.
