Bose Neuro 35

Music. Mood. Focus.

Insight

Science proves that music can greatly impact our physical and emotional state. The need to be productive is something we can all relate to, and when we listen to the right type of music it can improve our performance. 

Opportunity

Bose was the first to pioneer great sound quality in headphones, but they need move beyond just sound quality and creative a new musical experience. Advancements in neurotechnology and BCMI (brain computer music interfacing) are leading to more innovative experiences. The way in which we listen and interact with our music continues to change, and we're moving further away from physical interfaces.

Idea

Bio-personalization of music. 

A universal wireless headset with eeg sensors that can be paired with a number of devices and popular music streaming platforms. Using neurotechnology, the wireless headset acts as a middle man between a person's mood and his/her playlist(s).
