The Crown is an EEG device that uses signal processing to translate your brain waves into an interpretable level of focus. When your brain is focused on a task, it emits higher levels of Gamma brain waves which the Crown’s EEG sensors are able to detect.
This type of measurement has been used in hospitals and research institutions for nearly a century to study the brain. Neurosity never stores any of these brainwave readings on our servers as we believe they should only belong to you and you only.
As the Crown measures your Gamma brain waves, it is able to create a baseline for your focus level.
Simplistically, as the Crown detects more Gamma brain waves, it knows your productivity is increasing, while if it detects fewer Gamma brain waves it knows your focus is decreasing.
When you experience a Shift, you have increased your focus by over 25% (colloquially called being In the Zone).
The Crown helps you achieve these Shifts by playing music that is specifically designed to help people concentrate. Neurosity has worked with researchers to compose music that is best suited for improving focus and is constantly creating more tracks. The Crown can recognize which music is most effective to help you enter the Zone and play that music. On average it takes a person 25+ minutes to experience a Shift into High Focus, but with the Crown people regularly experience a shift in 5 minutes or less!
Neurosity’s goal is to make it as easy and quick as possible to Shift into High Focus. The team has developed the Neurosity App (get it on the App Store and Google Play) to make it even easier for everyone to achieve these goals.
Connecting the Neurosity App to your Crown allows you to see your Shifts in real-time as well as understand how long you were able to stay in the Zone. The Neurosity App will walk you through the process of connecting your Crown and then highlight relevant graphs so you know where to monitor improvement.
Music that helps you Shift into High Focus most effectively is recorded by the App so that the Crown can help you enter the Zone as quickly and efficiently as possible.
The Crown was built on the backs of science, iteration, and excitement. Neurosity is here today, thanks to the scientific community’s desire to consistently push boundaries and understand more about ourselves. Neurosity has taken that research and applied it to the Crown. The Crown is our 3rd product and our first one to be mass-produced. Previously, we created the Notion 1 and the Notion 2. These devices were limited runs and were used to understand what was most important in people in regards to specs, features, and design. We discovered that in order to measure brain waves effectively, we needed to put an entire computer in the Crown as Bluetooth lost too much data during transfer. All three of these devices were designed and assembled in North America out of our New York headquarters.
The Crown is a passive device - it does not use electrical stimulation. Hospitals and research institutions have been using EEGs for close to a century to study the brain and the brain waves it produces. The Crown comes with 8 active EEG sensors located at CP3, C3, F5, PO3, PO4, F6, C4, and CP4. All sensors are flexible and dry. Reference and bias sensors are located at T7 and T8.
