In Fortune magazine, Clay Dillow agrees to try a new electronic headset from neuroscience startup Thync. Fixing small electrodes to his temple and the back of his neck, he finds it stimulates his brain to experience exactly what he’s been told will happen.
“The pulses — each ‘100 times lower than what’s considered dangerous,’ Tyler insists —- feel comfortably warm but not painful,” writes Dillow. “Just as Pal described, the familiar tension in my shoulders eases, my breathing slows, my mind noticeably stops racing. My body takes on the feeling of lax warmth usually associated with a finger or two of scotch—my usual means of unwinding.”
