Change Your Mind
Lincoln Nguyen, Mike Pesavento, Paul Sukhanov, Watson B. Watson

Measure your heart rate and brain wave activity, and see how they correspond to your emotional state.

While the EEG headset monitors brain activity, the ECG—a heart rate sensor—monitors changes in the visitor’s heart rate. Changing your breathing can help calm and relax you, affecting your mental state (more relaxed) and altering your heart rate variability (HRV), a metric for general health.

Reaching a state of relaxation influences both your brain and heart. Providing visual feedback of your progress during the breathing exercise makes it easier to reach a relaxed state. With practice over time you’ll be able to reach a state of relaxation faster, which in turn will help with your overall physical and mental health.
