The Muse headband contains sensors on the forehead and behind the ears. You slip it on like a pair of glasses.

Interaxon co-founder Ariel Garten said that the headband picks up brainwave data and sends it to your phone, and then it's able to show you how your brain is doing.

'It can show when your thoughts are calm and when you're focused on what's in front of you. Or when your brain is active, when you have tons of thoughts, when you're bothered, when you're agitated, when your mind is wandering,' Garten said.

The brainwave data is translated onto the corresponding app as a beach scene. When your mind is active, you hear the wind pick up and the clouds come in. When your mind is calm, you hear birds chirp and see a clear day.

Users go through a 3-minute exercise focusing on their breathing to try to calm their thoughts and clear out the clouds. It's similar to guided meditation.
