As a follow up to last months’ shipping announcement, we wanted to share the excitement of CES 2014 with you.
CES was a major milestone because it proved that we are ready to head to production. The success of the conference lead us to hard shipping dates for your Muses.
Though the 48
hours prior to the show we were hit with a massive snowstorm delaying flights
and delivery of materials we all made it safe and sound, Muses in hand. Last
year we were the new kids on the block and received a lot of attention, this
year it was all about demoing the app and providing people a hands on review of
the fully redesigned Muse – something that made us nervous as we promised
ourselves CES would see the final prototype.
Almost from the onset our booth was overrun by media and consumers, standing in line upwards of an hour to try our product. In fact, people were even mesmerized by watching others try the Muse units. Perhaps our award in the CES Innovations 2014 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree for ‘Tech For A Better World’ had something to do with it.
It would seem our added efforts paid off in a big way. Muse was a 100% hit with no negative feedback – something that made us very proud and even more excited to share this final device version with you, our supporters.
We also had a lot of great media coverage on the functionality of the app and the overall usability of Muse. Here’s what some of the media said about us:
“The whole thing is more flexible, and rubbery cushions have been added to its ends. These make wearing the headband perfectly comfortable”
“I was extremely impressed with the duo’s effectiveness in calming me down and helping me focus”
“Interaxon’s Muse headband is like a mind-reading meditation coach”
Just a reminder, the Developer Deluxe Muse prototypes and early SDK access will be shipping end of March. The consumer-ready models will be reaching supporters in May.
Until next time!

Hey Everyone Another quick update from the IX HQ…. The quickly growing Developer Team continues to work on agile sprints, while our Product Team uses a lean UX methodology to help them manage this process. So what? Here’s a diagram of that process, to give you a quick glimpse of how we’re building the app that will be included with your Muse when it ships:
Another quick update from the IX HQ….
The quickly growing Developer Team continues to work on agile sprints, while our Product Team uses a lean UX methodology to help them manage this process. So what? Here’s a diagram of that process, to give you a quick glimpse of how we’re building the app that will be included with your Muse when it ships:
1. We put forward hypotheses of potential applications for our brain sensing technology and conducted up-front user research using quick-and-dirty-prototypes. This approach helped us refine and iterate concepts which stood out. More importantly, it also helped eliminate concepts that were simple novelties or “neat gadgets”.
After trying the prototype, our research participants consistently told us the value it could have in their daily lives. We built that learning and feedback into our final product.
2. We combined a couple of powerful industry methods (“lean UX”, “agile”) with a little out-of-the-box thinking into what we’re calling an “aspirational” design approach. Long story short, our developers worked on new iterative builds every two weeks, and we ran each build through the gauntlet of extensive usability testing and UX validation.
3. As a parallel process, we are maintaining an "aspirational" long-term view of the product concept and constantly revising it based on our user tests.
Our developers are working around the clock to bring the concept to life as the Product Team simultaneously refines and improves the user experience. These improvements ripple out into our long-term vision of the product.
The goal? We want to make sure this is not just another gadget, but a robust, innovative tool which helps improve your daily life.
Until next time
