Featured on both Next Great Thing and Make Magazine's blogs, Mindpulse is the only complete light-and-sound brain machine for the iPhone and iPod Touch.
Like your heart, your brain has a "pulse". Relaxed, excited or asleep, this pulse reflects your current state of mind.
Unlike the heart, you can control your brain's pulse using light and sound. MindPulse takes advantage of a behavior of the brain called "entrainment" to set the pulse of your brain.
Simply select the duration of the session and your desired state of mind and MindPulse will use flashing light and binaural beats to entrain your brain from its current state into the state you have selected.
MindPulse is the only application for the iPhone/iPod Touch which provides SYNCRONIZED audio and visual stimulation for brainwave entrainment similar to commercial "brain machine" devices costing hundreds of dollars and featured in DIY magazines like Make.
MindPulse 1.6 provides the following states:
We are determined to make MindPulse "the" brainwave entrainment application for the iPhone and are continually developing new features and improving existing ones. Our goal is an effective tool that focuses on what is known and tested in the realm of brainwave entrainment and avoid gimmicks or other elements which do not directly serve the purpose of giving you more control over your state of mind.
Other entrainment applications claim to help you quit smoking, lose weight, increase brain power, etc. Our only claim is to the scientifically proven effects of stimulation-based brainwave synchronization. We leave it up to you to decide how you take advantage of this effect.
For more information about brainwave entrainment, visit Wikipedia and search for "brainwave entrainment" and "brain machines", and visit our website for more information on using MindPulse for these purposes.
