Equipped with seven finely calibrated EEG sensors that detect and measure brain activity, it communicates via Bluetooth with your phone or tablet to translate said data into a readable chart, so you can see just how stressed you are at a given moment. Then, based on the feedback, it'll prompt you to complete a series of exercises built into its app — calibrated to your particular current condition — that are scientifically proven to reduce stress, increase focus, sharpen concentration, and relieve anxiety. It's the equivalent to popping a digital Xanax.
