Do you ever sit to meditate and spend more time wondering if you are doing it right than repeating your mantra? Well, this device is to get nuerofeedback from your brain while you are meditating.

These glasses are going to be essential when staring at a screen all day. The artificial light source can really mess with the way your body processes the daylight.
