Thought it was interesting this is on the market. Everywhere I checked it's sold out.

Now that's a game I'd buy for my kids, and for us old folk too ;)

I found it on ebay (http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trksid=p5197.m570.l1313&_nkw=mind+flex&_sacat=See-All-Categories)

it seems very cool and not to be negative but why should we have to pay to develop these type of skills!

that does sound like something fun to play with...

Whenever you concentrate, you generate brainwave activity. Mindflex uses a variation of EEG technology to "read" the intensity of these brainwaves via sensors positioned on your forehead and ears. These sensors do not generate or interfere with brainwaves; they only read what is already there.

Once the Mindflex headset recognizes your brainwaves, it transmits a signal to a fan within the console. This fan controls ball levitation. Your brainwaves, in turn, control the power of the fan. The more effectively you concentrate, the stronger the fan blows and the higher the ball floats. Relaxing your mind relaxes the fan's airflow, which lowers the ball.

Sounds pretty far out. I read some customer reviews from Amazon; very mixed. Worth reading to get the whole picture, some very disappointed folks. This kind of gadget is in it's early days. Some people raved about it, but these could be made up comments by promoters.

Thanks for posting. This type of gadget should attract a lot of attention from DIY'ers. Hopefully you can't give yourself ECT with it. If anyone sees a DIY circuit, plz post link. The light at the end of the tunnel is a whole new range of aids for paralysed and disabled people.


There's also the Force Trainer (http://blastr.com/2009/06/no-light-sabers-yet-but-t.php) (for $120)
