SAN JOSE, Calif., March 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- NeuroSky, the leading Brain-Computer Interface company, is adding to their innovative lineup of products with the launch of the Brainwave Starter Kit, a MindWave Mobile package that offers an introduction to neuroscience and brainwave technology.

Simply slip on the MindWave Mobile EEG headset and see your brainwaves displayed on screen in the colorful Brainwave Visualizer. Watch your relaxation levels change in real time as you listen to your favorite music, or monitor your attention levels as you do a series of math problems in Speed Math! 

The MindWave Mobile safely measures and outputs the EEG power spectrums (alpha waves, beta waves, etc), NeuroSky eSense meters (attention and meditation) and eye blinks. The device consists of a headset, with an ear clip, and a sensor arm.  The headset's reference and ground electrodes are on the ear clip and the EEG electrode is on the sensor arm, resting on the forehead above the eye.

"This new package will give users a background in the neuroscience and brainwave technology field before trying some of our other products," said Stanley Yang, NeuroSky CEO. "We're excited to begin offering the Brainwave Starter Kit and look forward to introducing our technology to a new generation."

As the world's first comprehensive brainwave-reading device for iOS and Android, the MindWave Mobile headset is evolved for today's mobile user. It differs from its sister-product MindWave by transferring the user's RAW brainwave data via Bluetooth rather than radio frequency. This increases accessibility for users and dynamically opens up opportunities on mobile and tablet platforms, a market that exceeds personal computers and is trending exponentially. 

Whether it is blowing up a can of RedBull on the iPad, or levitating a cupcake on an Android device, MindWave Mobile lets users train their brain to focus and relax no matter where they are. 

Listed at $99.99, Brainwave Starter Kit works with over 100 software applications available through http://store.neurosky.com.
