Brain hacking gadgets are going to become a lot more popular in the future. You don’t have to wait years to try them though. Take ELF Emmit for instance. It is a wearable device that emits pulses from 2 Hz up to 19 Hz to change frequencies & rhythms of your mind. The gadget has an app with Sleep, Meditation, Concentration, Deep Learning, and Anti-Stress programs.
We recently had a chance to test the device. It has a simple design with no extra bells and whistles. There is no battery to charge or buttons to play with. You will just have to choose the right program and connect the gadget to your smart device via its headphone jack.
The Elf Emmit has an electromagnetic coil at its heart. It emits extra-low frequency electromagnetic pulses to push your brain towards the desired state. Your program should last from 30 minutes to 120 minutes depending on the one you choose. The developers explain that using this gadget for a longer period than what’s recommended is not beneficial.
I did have success with sleep and anti-stress programs. The ELF Emmit seems pretty durable considering that we mistreated it on purpose. I wish it had a more adjustable design though (perhaps even wireless). The first few times, I experienced a mild headache after trying the sleep program but that problem went away by the third day.
