The Exciting Future of Brain Wearables and You
The brain is the most complex system in the known universe. We are on the glowing, LED-illuminated edge of what publicity-minded futurists have dubbed “The Fourth Industrial Revolution, a revolution that is growing from the integration of the physical, digital and biological domains.
This sounded kind of far-fetched to me until I looked around and paid attention to how far we already are in that direction right now. This is especially obvious when it comes to humanity’s growing fixation with “wearables”.
Wearable technology has been a “thing” for a while now. It began with the Fitbit back in the dim prehistoric past of 2013, but since then an endless parade of new technology has emerged, each new product offering to measure something new about our bodies.
“Wearable tech” has now become a genre of technology unto itself and an ever-increasing number of people are becoming normalized to the idea that humans and technology can occupy the same physical space.
There is a demand for more granularity and more data through which we can understand and measure ourselves. Then, along came neurotechnology!
Innovative companies like Neurogress are developing neurocontrol systems that will set the stage for a whole new category of wearable technologies. These “wearables” combined with AI-driven software will target the most mysterious organ of our bodies: the brain.
Variables such as physical memory, stimulation of the hunger centers of our brain, hormones and metabolic rate will all become graphs we can see and use to gain a deeper understanding of how we work.
This new breed of wearable technology will allow athletes to better understand their brain’s involvement in training and achieving peak performance, but the benefits may not stop there. One in three people are affected by brain-related illnesses. These include depression, anxiety, dementia, autism and attention-deficit disorder. Wearables which provide a better insight into the brain’s state of health may have a profound impact on sufferers’ lives.
But it gets weirder… and cooler! With a process called ‘transcranial direct current stimulation’, we’re no longer using a wearable merely to passively look at what our brains are doing. We’re in a position to directly affect it in order to improve our performance. This is called “neuropriming”.
Imagine opening an app on your phone and sliding a memory retention bar from 65% to 85%. You feel a tingle behind your ear and suddenly you’re aware that your mind feels sharper. Memories come to you with greater clarity and ease.
Companies like Neurogress are developing software systems for neurocontrol that builds a foundation for these kinds of neuropriming devices to be used cheaply and safely. Their software has the huge advantage of permitting brain data to be collected through a removable device. It’s hard to see a downside!
