Is there any way to eliminate the lag between what my brain is doing, and the feedback Muse gives me?
On the upside, Muse has helped me be more aware of my brain, what it’s doing, how it’s working, when it’s distracted, and so on. That’s the goal, so far so good.
I’ve even gotten to the point where I can play with my brain and see what sorts of thinking, imagining, and so on, affect the feedback I get from Muse.
But now I’ve hit a wall. There’s roughly a half second delay between what my brain is doing and the feedback Muse gives me. That means that when I’m actually meditating I can notice my brain is getting distracted, correct it, and THEN Muse will sound the alarm saying I’m off track, by which point I’m actually not and the dissonance can throw me off completely.
The experience reminds me of this speech jamming gun. https://www.technologyreview.com/s/427116/how-to-build-a-speech-jamming-gun/
In the past I’ve experienced a similar delay when using Bluetooth headphones that makes them useless for watching movies or playing games. So maybe that’s it? Can Muse be plugged into my phone instead of connecting over Bluetooth? Anything?
