Brainwave interface, you say? Most people would look at you with a blank stare if you even mentioned those words to them, but if you took time to view our OCZ NIA Brain-Computer Interface review, you probably know very well what the deal is here. PLX Devices has debuted what they call the world's first brainwave interface for iPod/iPhone/iPad, with the "XWave" and its accompanying apps allowing you to just think and control the world around you. Pretty bold promises, don't you think?

To use this, you'll first need to get over any fear you may have of looking goofy in public. Because as soon as you strap this headgear on, you'll be considered goofy. The device is powered by Neurosky technologies, and for the first time it brings an extra sensory dynamic never seen before at the consumer level. For years, this technology has been used by doctors to treat epilepsy and seizures in patients. XWave senses the faintest electrical impulses transmitted through your skull to the surface of your forehead and converts these analog signals into digital signals.


The free XWave app works with your iPhone, iPod or iPad and the headgear in order to let you become familiar with controlling objects with your mind and gives you an opportunity to train your brain to control its attention and meditation levels. With the application you will have to go through different stages to control the function of your brain. Objectives include: having to levitate a ball for a certain amount of time, change a color based on the relaxation of your brain and training your brain to maximize its attention span. Another app that is available for download from iTunes is XWave Tunes. This app will allow users to connect with each other through the music that stimulates their brainwaves. It's all pretty much fun and games, but we do get the impression that this could help your focus skills if used on a regular basis.

The XWave hardware is available to purchase today for $99.99, with shipments going out next month. Just make sure to only use it indoors, and please, explain to your wife and children what it is first. Wouldn't want them walking in on you and expecting you to blast off for the moon, would you?

Sunnyvale, Calif. – September 7, 2010 – PLX Devices Inc. today unveiled the XWave™, the world’s first brainwave interface accessory for the iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad. The XWave™ is a small device worn over your head similar to any standard headphone device. Paired with its apps, XWave allows you to control your mind and the world around it.

The XWave™, powered by Neurosky Inc. technologies, for the first time brings an extra sensory dynamic never seen before at the consumer level.

The device comes bundled with the free XWave App. The App allows you to become familiar with controlling objects with your mind and gives you an opportunity to train your brain to control its attention and meditation levels.

 “The human brain is the most powerful, complex thing in the universe, and for the first time, we’re able to harness its amazing power and connect it to everyday technology,” said Paul Lowchareonkul, Founder and CEO of PLX Devices Inc. “With the development of 3rd party apps, the potential for innovation is limitless.”

PLX Devices Inc. is also offering 3rd party software developers the opportunity to design and develop apps through its Software Development Kit (SDK) program. This allows app developers to add compelling hardware interfaces for any type of application. Whether it is relaxation, brain training, entertainment, games, social networking, sports, sleep, the possibilities are endless with the XWave hardware device. Some of the applications that are being developed at the moment will allow you to play games by controlling objects with your mind, control the lights in your home or select the type of music through your iPod based on your mood.

I wonder how many subliminal messages it will give off telling you that Apple is good, everything else is bad, and that you just have to buy anything new that Apple releases.
