Brain Games

What kind of Geek could resist an opportunity to improve his or her mind?  If there is such a geek, I am not that kind.

So when I heard the advertisements sponsorship acknowledgments on NPR for Lumosity, I decided to check it out.

Lumosity develops and offers online games that improve mental function.  Their aim is to enable anyone to achieve his or her full potential, brain-wise, at least.

Lumosity provides two tiers of service: free, and subscription.  Users of free accounts are restricted to just three games per day, while subscribers have access not only to unlimited games, but also Personalized Training, Performance Tracking, and comparisons to other Lumosity users.

Since I joined way back on June 1, I've improved slowly and steadily to match the ability of someone half my age, assuming that someone is a slug.  Haha.  Just kidding.  Actually I have no idea because I'm using a free account.  All I know is that four weeks ago my score was 1025 and now it is 1111.


Here's my Brain Performance broken down into various categories:

So check out Lumosity. It's free. It's fun. And you might just gain enough improvement to survive the upcoming Zombie Apocolypse.
