Additional Functions
In addition to the apps that will be included with Muse, we provide an SDK (www.choosemuse.com/developers) to use to create apps yourself. We will provide both higher-level processing (which does sophisticated analysis) and lower-level processing (which simply reads raw data from the device and does some basic analysis) so you can take whichever approach fits your needs.

  • Battery died after two years. No way to replace it.

    Interesting novelty device. Not a serious meditation tool though. There a many books and apps that are far better for far less money. Also, after a couple of years use the battery fails to hold a charge for more than seven minutes. Interaxon would not sell a replacement battery or provide the specs so I could attempt to purchase one from a third party a solder it on myself. So, if you are willing to spend three hundred dollars on a novelty that becomes garbage after a couple of years, it’s kind of fun. Othwise look elsewhere. I would not recommend buying from this company nor would I support it in future.

    Pretty much part of the official evil villain ensemble this brain-sensing device is perfect for any super hero or evil villain party. Trap your opponents with powerful telekinesis strength like never before!

    I've been meaning to meditate for sometime now, but didn't know how. This makes it easy, challenging and fun.
