LazyBrains Can Help with Attention and Focus

A headband-looking device that records levels of brain activity was originally developed by Drexel University to monitor patients under anesthesia. But it now serves a dual purpose, also being used in a new video game called LazyBrains.
"LazyBrains features Morby, a couch potato transported to a dangerous fantasy world as punishment for not exercising his brain. Morby must use his mental power to navigate through obstacles to find his way back home."
Players use a keyboard to make Morby run and jump, but actions like lifting can only be done using the headband. The game responds when it senses that enough brain power is being exerted. The innovative game was a collaborative effort between the university's computer science department and the college of engineering. Source: PsychOrg.com
