Have you ever dreamed of zooming around like Iron Man or having the stealthy skills of Black Widow? Well, technology might not be able to give you a titanium alloy suit (yet), but some innovative gadgets are sure to make you feel like you’ve stepped out of a comic book.
Whether it’s tech to increase your cognitive capacity or heads-up displays that provide information like Tony Stark’s JARVIS, these devices can enhance your abilities and make you feel like you’re the world’s next great superhero.
Gadgets to Improve Cognitive Function
Everyone wants a brain that works like Mister Fantastic’s, right? Well, there’s no need to endure an accident in a gamma radiation lab. With a few gadgets, you can give your brain a superhero boost.
Consider the ThinkZing, a device that uses a form of neurostimulation called transcutaneous peripheral nerve stimulation (tPNS) to help tune your mind to states of calm or energy.
By attaching the FeelZing Energy Patch behind your ear, you may be able to send your productivity into overdrive and sharpen your focus. According to the company’s research, 84% of people who used the Energy Patch reported a moderate or strong increase in energy levels.
Another cognitive enhancement device is Muse. This headband is like your personal Professor X, helping you tune into your brain’s activity. Muse gives real-time feedback on your brain’s activity, helping to guide your meditation practice.
Muse claims their device can increase clarity, reduce stress, and improve sleep by 20%. And who doesn’t feel like a superhero when they have a good night’s rest? If you’re a DIY enthusiast and are feeling a little adventurous, you might also check out 10 DIY props to make you feel like a superhero.
