At present, the only Muse headband is made in China.
The idea of the Muse headband stems from Garten\'s collaboration with Steve Mann, a computing engineer at the University of Toronto, in 2002 and 2003.
His brain is primitive.
He built the computer interface system in the 1990 s at MIT.
When she ran a clothing store, Garten and Mann started working together in his home lab, and she said: \"create a concert that allows you to create music with your head . \".
She met Chris Aimon there, too. founder.
Aimone had a master\'s degree in computer engineering and was a student under Mann.
\"At some point in this adventure, I was looking for a way to bring neuroscience tools to the public,\" Garten recalls . \".
\"I went back to the original technique I worked at Steve labs, where we interacted directly with the world with our minds and heard what our brains sounded like.
Aimone and Garten later worked with another colleague from InteraXon

At the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, thousands of the public wore headphones developed by InteraXon to enable them to light up the CN Tower, the Niagara Falls and the Capitol.
Headphones measure electrical signals in the brain and send out radio waves connected to the lighting system by three landmarks thousands of kilometers away.
After some adjustments, the team will develop the Muse that went public in the fall of 2014 and is now under the responsibility of Best Buy.
Muse has received high attention from more than 100 research and scientific institutions, including the Mayo Clinic.

The story of Ariel Garten is both about style and self and about science and technologyawareness.
Garten said that when she graduated from Grade 12, a secondary school in northern Toronto, she had passed the institute\'s biotechnology program and was proficient in DNA analysis and synthesis.
This made her work in a laboratory at the Samuel Lenfield Institute in her teens, the leading biomedical research center at Mount Sinai Hospital, where Garten handles embryonic stem cells.
At the same time, she has set up a series of costumes she calls \"avant-garde\" and sold them to Queen St\'s storeW.
And in New York.
Garten graduated from the University of Toronto in 2002 with a degree in biology and psychology and was awarded the title of neuroscience, when he opened a clothing store at the University of St.

She said the income was not big, but she did not lose money.
She received a lot of coverage in the media and became the main content of the city\'s annual fashion week event.

She also has a son, Joel Garten, 34
She asked her children to choose their own direction in life.
\"I did not send my child to kindergarten or primary kindergarten.
I feel like they are too young to be strictly managed, so I asked them to create their own path, and that\'s exactly what Ariel did.
\"When I was a child, Ariel would look at me and draw: a painting starts on a blank canvas, and then a world full of imagination appears on the canvas.
I always told Ariel that she could do the same.
If she dreams of something, it may become tangible . . . . . . \"Ariel was bold, mature, artistic and quickly mastered the concept.
Her career path did not surprise me at all.
\"Garten is also driven by the desire to change, inter said, InteraXon co-founder.
She \"ensures that we are building an organization and a product to make a positive contribution to the world and improve people\'s daily lives.
Garten has been pregnant with her first child for four months.
She married animator and game developer Chris de Castro, 36, who recently made a video game based on Trinity Bell Woods Park in Toronto.
Garten says her goal is to help people reach a \"glorious calm\" state with Muse, which is also invaluable to her.
\"My own mission is to tell people that the little voice in your head, the voice that makes you feel that you are not good enough, the voice that keeps us away from the beauty, we can live a peaceful life.
My task is to help people learn to talk in this voice and be quiet when you don\'t need it.
\"Muse, you can use the sensor in the headband to measure the electrical activity of the brain.
A free downloadable app compatible with an iPhone or Android device is connected to the headband.
The voice recorded on the app guides the user to meditate.
The less you relax, the more wind and waves the app makes.
The chirping bird sounds like a reward for reaching a calm state, and there will be scores during the session to evaluate your overall calm.
