So like a muscle, the brain has to be worked constantly to improve. This goes for both the developing mind of a child all the way to the mature mind of a senior who is looking to improve his/her brain functions. Thus the SenzeBand was created to do just that.
Produced by Neeuro, whose working partnerships includes the likes of neurologist, professors and even Singapore's Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*Star). This new neuro technology is now available for you at ToyTag!
The SenzeBand works by reading your EEG or in layman terms, brainwaves and through bluetooth then sends that information to the Memorie app (Available on both IOS and Andriod) which was made for use in tandem with the SenzeBand.
The Memorie app though does more than just show you your brainwave's readings though, it has tailor-made games that help you to train your brain in aspects you might want to reinforce or improve on. Thus far there are 15 games, each with 10 levels with more to come.
Examples of the games include those like Psychic Cyclist, which was made to help train focus. The gameplay is simple, just focus your thoughts on the boy on the cycle to make him move and get him to the finish line as fast as possible.
The task itself seeming easy but you would be surprised that even the thought of saying, "Move." can be a distraction to the task at hand.
Or if memory is on your agenda, try out Sushi Recall. It is a simple game of remembering the last sushi plate that had gone off screen. Again, it seems simple but the fact that you have to do it in a limited time with the following sushi plate so close behind causes one to mess up unintentionally and regularly without practice.
After playing any game, you have the option to review your EEG readings that were tracked during the game. These readings will show you which sections of your cognitive ability is doing well or needs improvement.
In fact, as a testament that the games themselves were fun on top of being a good brain exercise. When a demo copy was tried out in the store, a family tried it out and ended up playing the games for over an hour.
The SenzeBand by Neeuro is available now in our HarbourFront Store at $425, which includes all 15 games up to level 10.
