Frequently Asked Questions

General Questions

Q: What is MindEnabled® Technology?

A: MindEnabled® Technology (ME Tech for short) is a combination of hardware specially designed to respond directly to mental focus and algorithms that process this response to produce specific, desired results. The results may be as simple as producing an excess number of ones in an otherwise random binary sequence, or as complex as answering a question that cannot be answered using available information and traditional logic.

Q: How is ME Tech Different from a "Mind-Controlled" Interface?

A: The term "Mind Control" has been used to describe a type of interface that uses brain waves or EEG signals to produce control signals for various devices. Once electrodes are attached to the user’s head, the electronic variations from neurons firing in the brain are amplified and processed to obtain the desired signals. ME Tech does not require electronic connections to the user, and it can provide information that cannot be obtained from processed brain waves.

Q: What is a MindEnabled® Device?

A: A MindEnabled® Device (ME Device for short) is the hardware part of MindEnabled® Technology, specially designed to directly respond to mental focus. Each device makes billions of measurements of truly random signals and processes them to provide a relatively small number of bias-amplified outputs for further processing.

Q: Can I Buy a MindEnabled® Device?

A: Unfortunately no, MindEnabled® Devices are currently not available for sale.

Q: How can I try MindEnabled® Technology?

A: Games, training tools, contests, and applications are available on MindEnabled.com. You must set up an account and then subscribe to the service to use the games and tools, and enter contests.

Q: Can I use ME Tech with my other games or applications?

A: Not yet. To interface with a game, its designers must provide a connection and define what the interaction will do inside the game.

Subscriptions and Contests

Q: How much does a subscription cost?

A: Initially, subscriptions will be free of charge. After a brief testing period, subscriptions will cost $20 per month.

Q: Do I have to buy a subscription to enter a Contest?

A: Subscriptions will usually cost $20 per month, but residents of certain states may enter contests without any purchase by requesting a free limited-access subscription to practice and enter contests. For more details, see the Official Rules for each contest.

Q: What contests can I enter?

A: Subscriptions will usually cost $20 per month, but residents of certain states may enter contests without any purchase by requesting a free limited-access subscription to practice and enter contests. For more details, see the Official Rules for each contest.

Q: Can I win cash or other prizes in MindEnabled.com Contests?

A: MindEnabled.com Contests are presented as a way to publicize ME Tech and encourage users to demonstrate its potential. Active contests typically include cash or other valuable prizes for Contest winners. See the Official Rules for each Contest for a description of the awarded prizes.

MindEnabled® Trainer

Q: I got a low score using METrainer. What does that mean?

A: METrainer usually takes practice, and it always takes focus, to get better scores. You may get a low score if you are just beginning or if you were distracted or not feeling at your best.

Q: How do I get a high score with METrainer?

A: Read the METrainer Instructions for helpful hints. Using this technology is a skill similar to a sport—practice and determination will give the best results. Experiment. Find your own rhythm and the approach that best works for you.
