    Prediction: A special limited edition model will be sold for $500 that changes color to reflect mood. The news story will read...

    "InterAxon released Muse Color for $500 last week. The new brainwave-sensing headband is claimed to change color in response to the mood of user.

While InterAxon would not comment on complaints from female customers, a member of their development team did suggest that it is highly unlikely that the latter issue is a problem with the band's sensors."
