What is the NeuroOn?
NeuroOn is the world’s first brainwave - monitoring SLEEP MASK that allows you to switch from monophasic to polyphasic sleep. That means you can sleep less and more efficiently.
Do you ever feel sleepy?
Are your plans to take over the world taking up all your free time? So much to do and so little time?
We're the same!
Do you dream about squeezing extra hours into your schedule to have fun, relax or work?
So do we!
Why not do just that with the NeuroOn?
As seen on:
What is your dream?
Do you need more energy and to feel well - rested?
Do you want to pack even more into your day?
Do you want to have more control over your day?
Do you hate jet lag?
Do you just need that few extra hours every day?
Do you want to be a hero by day and a superhero by night?
The NeuroOn is for you!
What is polyphasic sleep?
It is a term referring to alternate sleep patterns that can reduce the required sleep time to just 2-6 hours daily. It involves breaking up your sleep into smaller parts throughout the day, which allows you to sleep less but feel as refreshed as if you slept for 8 hours or more.
Simply put, it's a series of fine-tuned power naps that allow you to sleep effectively, rest better and perform at optimum energy levels during the day.
Additionally, NeuroOn monitored polyphasic sleep allows you to sync your body clock to very demanding schedules at whatever time is convenient or required.
In conclusion, through great sleep efficiency, Polyphasic sleep can give you an extra 4 hours of free time every day. That’s up to 28 hours (1 day+) a week, 1460 hours a year.
That’s right - Your year now has over 420 working days!
Trust the mastersSo, you’ve heard of Leonardo? No, not the turtle!
Apparently Da Vinci, Tesla, Churchill and even Napoleon used polyphasic sleep to rest. It allowed them to fully regenerate, reducing sleep time to 6.5 hours or sometimes just 2 hours. And those guys got things done!
Science that helps you sleep. (Details)
NeuroOn is a wearable sleeping mask that measures your biological signals, including: brain waves (EEG - electroencephalography), muscle tension (EMG - electromyography) and eye movements (EOG - electrooculography).
All the data collected from a user's sleep is transformed from analogue readings to digital analysis and sent via wireless interface fully compliant with Bluetooth 4.0 LE to a smartphone application.
When you sleep, you go through two phases: REM and NREM and one follows the other. Using intelligent analysis based on data collected by the NeuroOn, the device will wake you up after your last REM phase, allowing you to feel fully rested and energized.
Thanks to the use of the newest technologies we were able to create a device that will improve your effectiveness and concentration at work to the best possible levels. Measurements of EEG, EOG and EMG, coupled with the usage of artificial intelligence, allows us to create the world's first digital sleep-control system that provides accuracy close to professional polisomnographic clinics. It's a whole new level above current, simple solutions that only use accelerometer readings to detect sleep phases. The NeuroOn reads biological signals direct from your body, allowing for super precise and in-depth measurements.
NeuroOn will be powered with the inner battery. It will be rechargeable using micro-USB charger. The battery works for at least 10 days.
There’s an app for that!
NeuroOn is managed by a smartphone Android and iOS application so that you have full control over your sleep cycles.
When you are sleeping, the app is working hard to learn your personal sleeping preference and style. Yeah, you’ve got style!
Our intelligent algorithms calculate your individual sleep patterns. The NeuroOn app not only records your sleep data, but also helps you to analyze and optimize your sleep to make sure you enjoy your every waking moment.
Using the app, you can access your complete and personalised data about your sleep and rest at any time.
You can then analyze your data to choose the best sleeping pattern for you, reducing both stress and fatigue.
Oh, and jet lag. Who needs it?
No more of that! With the NeuroOn mask you can manage your sleep and rest whenever and wherever you want - not just when your travel plans make you. You can easily eliminate jet lag and travel without having to recharge after every flight!
Consider turning on Polyphasic sleep mode.
This is supposedly the way Leonardo Da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, Nicola Tesla and, we suspect, Bruce Wayne, used to sleep. Sleep less yet have more energy. Enjoy longer, more efficient days. Sleep a total of just 2 hours a day and let your productivity soar.
Am I dreaming?
The NeuroOn can pinpoint the exact start of your REM phase. NeuroOn has technology that helps you induce lucid dreaming, whenever you want. So you can literally control your dreams.
We went through dozen of designs, working tirelessly on the look and feel of the NeuroOn.
It took months to create the final artificial intelligence algorithms, which fit the bill. Today we finally have our working prototype and we’re ready for start manufacturing!
On the inside, we make the NeuroOn from soft, comfortable materials with the ability to adjust to your face, thanks to the use of viscoelastic foams - the latest version of memory foam.
The outside of the mask is fully customizable with various designs, including your own designs, so you can sleep in style.
Evolution of PCB
That's why we decided to build a dedicated and extraordinary biological amplifier which manages measurements perfectly in adverse conditions. With the aid of our original construction there is no need to humidify electrodes before using them. It's enough to put your finger on the surface and you'll see smooth ECG signal. If you want to see EEG waveform simply apply electrodes to your forehead, it's easy as that!
Attached below are the waveforms of ECG, EEG and EOG signals registered by our team. When you look at the spectrogram you can easily see the level of particular componential frequencies which distinguish relaxation state from the concentration state that are followed one by one in 15 second intervals. When a person is focused on solving a task and his or her frontal lobe is activated, a major action of faster beta waves occurs in the band above 16 Hz. In the opposite situation - relaxation state - you can observe lack of the aforementioned activity and an increase in alpha waves’ amplitude 15 sec. after finishing the task.
One of the main features of our biological amplifier is an ability to change parameters of its own analogue track. During profiling the signals it can easily switched from tracking high-amplitude signals (like the ECG) to the lower ones (like brain waves) in the suitable moment. There's no black box magic in it, only pure and advance engineering and our original patents. Not to mention that our device is fully safe and energy-saving, it can work steady one week without charging regardless of what power (battery or accumulator) you will use.
The electronics at the heart of the NeuroOn provide the highest precision of sleep measuring. Crucially, for the user's safety, data is only transmitted when the mask is not touching the user's face. Data transmission to the smartphone only occurs when you take the mask off in the morning.
When you rest, it’s a comfortable sleeping mask. When you wake up, it becomes a superhero mask, setting you up for whatever lies ahead.
The competition? They must be dreaming!
NeuroOn provides a whole new level of sleep monitoring and optimization. All the other smartphone apps and sleeping solutions currently available, that claim to analyze and help you sleep efficiently, rely purely on accelerometer readings.
Your every twist and turn affects the “sleep analysis” and can completely nullify all the data collected.
Only the NeuroOn analyzes your movement, your eye movement and your brainwaves all together for super accurate and reliable readings. Using an accelerometer alone is like using one note to compose a symphony.

Risks and challenges
Working on hardware is a challenging prospect. This is probably why it’s called hardware. Collecting brain waves and processing them is even harder. We have spent a lot of time to make our algorithms perfect in order to upgrade the accuracy of our device to the highest standards. As of this moment, we have reached a level that allows us to present you with the spectacular results. What can go wrong? Currently we are producing the majority of components on our own. We have already started cooperation with suitable companies for production on a global scale. Switching from home to global production can take a while, especially if any of the manufacturers fail at some point. Nevertheless we have taken this into consideration and belive the deadline reasonable, so predict we will be able to meet it just fine.
We partner with several experienced companies as our main suppliers of components. They are:
Fampur Adam Przekurat & Leonard Szczepkowski (producer and supplier of hi-tech viscoelastic foams),
Rutronik (supplier of electronic elements),
Mouser Electronics (supplier of electronic elements),
Texas Instruments (producer of electronic elements),
ST Microelectronics (producer of electronic elements),
Nordic Semiconductors (producer of electronic elements),
Microchip (producer of electronic elements).
We have also partnered with other local manufacturers for several years.
We have signed contracts with DHL and FedEx.
Your NeuroOn will come to you quickly and safely. All parcels are fully traceable, which means you will be able to track the location of your parcel online.
