With the internet of things and social media taking over most of our lives and it can sometimes be very distracting to stay focused on a task. We may all know that it takes up to 25 minutes (23 minutes and 15 seconds, to be exact) to return to the original task after an interruption. Sometimes it might not always be a good thing to have an open-door policy. In terms of the kids staying focused on their tasks, we now live in a world where you can only grab a person’s attention for a few minutes at a time until they are on to the next time. This is the world of social media and marketing. This will undoubtedly cause our kids to develop issues with concentration. Perhaps we might diagnosis ADHD too often but the reality is we all know it is an issue now and will be a bigger one with cellphones and social media dominating a lot of our kid’s lives. It has gotten so bad that we now have a ban on cellphones in school in certain countries/cities in the world. How we fight this trend? Do we fight the trend with more technology? Technology for good sort of speak? Looks like that is what Narbis is trying to do. It might not be a good looking headset but it has some very interesting benefits according to their website.
According to the website, The Narbis smart headset can do the following:
While reading or working on a computer, or doing homework, Narbis provides instant feedback to recognize when you are distracted, giving you the cue to get back on task. The smart glasses help identify these behaviours which encourages you to shift into a relaxed and attentive state.
Narbis uses Neurofeedback, which measures brain activity. Sensors in the Narbis glasses and a NASA patented algorithm to track how relaxed, distracted, and focused you are.
When you are distracted, the glasses comfortably change tint. When you are relaxed and concentrating, the glasses instantly clear. The included tablet and app shows your performance and tracks your progress.
