Brainy Games

Toy makers Mattel have recently launched a new game with an interesting, futuristic difference.

Mind Flex requires players to wear a headset equipped with sensors that measure brainwave activity in order to levitate a ball and move it through hoops. The sensors detect and measure the output of one brainwave frequency which increases with concentration. The waves are converted into a signal then sent to the game unit, which in turn powers the little fans, causing the ball to float.
