The growth of the wearable technology stream is so fast, and everyone wants a piece of it nowadays. If you happened to be on any one of these crowdfunding websites like Indiegogo, Kickstarter or GoFundme, you could find at least 2 out of 10 products is from the wearable category every month. Which is not so surprising, this is a multi-billion dollar industry and growing towards $51.60 billion by 2020.

In this article, we thought to discuss how wearable technology can help with the more important part of a human body “Brain”!

The brain is a very complex and yet more to discover part in the medical field. And it is relatively uncharted territory for the tech industry as well. So, how do these 17 Startups trying to fix your brain with their products and tech-enabled therapies. Let’s get into it!

Aim To “Hack the Brain”

Before that, what is driving these startups to be in this business, money? But it’s more than about the money, so the answer is all about one thing,

“hack the brain to improve cognitive performance and reduce stress, while others are looking to treat mental illnesses and nervous system disorders.”

But the obvious question is how they are going to get into your brain?!! Well, this is where they will bring their innovation to differentiate their products from other gears.

Top 6 Brain Boosting Technologies Of the Future

  1. NootropicsSmart drugs or Cognitive enhancers
  2. Gamified brainThe Power Of Games To Motivate brain cells
  3. App-led meditationMeditation through mobile apps
  4. AcousticsBoosting brain with different sound waves
  5. Non-invasive therapiesConservative treatment without any incision into the body or the removal of tissue
  6. Wearable devicesA self-fitness tracking Devices that you can wear it on daily basis

Interesting isn’t!! there’s lot more coming and it will be a game changer for neuroscience field. The scientist can explore more about the secrets of the brain function.

Here’s the list of Brain Boosting Technology startups,
