Stuff I do on the Internet: Lumosity
April 11, 2012 § 4 Comments
Lumosity comes from the word Latin root word Lumos, which means no one cares about Latin. The company’s goal is to improve your cognitive abilities through a series of games (if you don’t know what cognitive means, you might want to sign up). The games revolve around 5 categories each specifically designed to improve an aspect of your memory, speed, attention, problem solving, and of course shooting lasers from your eyes.
The trial period lasts for three days. I was planning on paying the $6.70 a month for a year plan; however, I realized after doing brain training for a few weeks for free I should become smart enough to find a way to use the service year round without paying. As a result, I am now on my second account. Here were my scores after 3 days. Note: I didn’t read the directions and worsened my scores severely.
I am challenging all of you to try to beat my scores. To challenge me, click here
