The Puzzlebox Orbit is a brain-controlled helicopter used to practice skills of concentration and mental relaxation. Orbit uses positive reinforcement in a fun, visual, and physical way so users can learn to better maintain focus and relieve stress.
Based on brainwave readings from the included EEG headset, the free mobile app will instruct the helicopter to hover, spin, or fly across the room.
Your levels of attention and mental clarity are displayed in realtime so you can see whether you need to focus or relax to get your helicopter to react.
