Concentration can be a problem, but the brain can be trained to increase and prolong it. Alejo Bernal has developed a neuro-feedback product that offers users insight into their brain’s performance. ‘Synapse’ converts brainwaves obtained from an EEG-sensor into physical stimuli and sends them to a toy vehicle. As you try to focus, the increased light intensity on the vehicle indicates the level of attention you have reached. Once the maximum level is achieved and retained for a period of time, the vehicle starts moving forward. Just sit, focus and move a car with your mind.
