We used to think control an object by human mind is the movie fiction. That was people’s fantasy. In fact, when I was a kid, I always dream about having this supernatural power….
When I saw this Mattel’s Mindflex Game, I thought “OMG! it’s really near my childhood’s dream.” The Mattel’s Mindflex Game consists of a sponge ball that you can levitate by using the power of your brain. The ball floats by means of a fan but the speed of the fan is directly controlled by your brain activity as measured by the aforementioned headgear. Brilliant!
So far this toys is only able to levitate a ping pong size ball, but I think this technology can be applied in other places. Who know we are using our mind power to drive a car in the future.
Mindflex will hit the market at the Fall of 2009 and will retail for ~$80.
