Many of us in the tech industry are all too familiar with the concept of “brain hacking.” Let's call it the Elon effect.
But before we all bring the power of the internet into our minds (welp), let's talk about the crop of apps that exist right now focused on making our brains stronger, less stressed and more productive.

ICYMI, we announced the Product Hunt Makers Festival (our annual hackathon) yesterday, which you can sign up for until November 24 at 11pm. Note: One of the themes this year is “Brain Stuff.”
Descript 2.0 launched yesterday to let you edit audio and video the same way you edit text. It's very cool (and great if you're a podcaster).
I just downloaded the app with the free 30 minutes of transcription and uploaded a podcast I recorded for one of my clients. I'm blown away at how accurate it is. — Michael Nease
