The company’s new eyewear can detect when a wearer is distracted and train their brain to remain focused. The recently released glasses currently sell for $590 but will go up to $690 once shipping starts in December.
“Narbis represents a very exciting opportunity for people looking to practice attention in daily life,” said Devon Greco, founder and CEO of Narbis.
According to Greco, the three sensors on the glasses – two behind the ears and one on top of the head – gather brainwave patterns and run it through a NASA algorithm. This determines if the wearer is distracted or not and if the answer is positive, the lenses then darken.
The product is currently being marketed as a training tool for students, but Greco emphasized that it can help anybody who is trying to improve their concentration.
“Sports teams are looking to improve their attention and their performance on the field,” he said. “There are also applications for the aging.”
