Mind Flex: Like Basketball, FOR YOUR BRAIN

Illustration for article titled Mind Flex: Like Basketball, FOR YOUR BRAIN

Putting a ball through a hoop is no big deal, unless you're using your brain to do it.

Mind Flex is a game in which the participant wears a headset that scans brainwaves with the hopes of controlling a mousetrap-like board. If the user can concentrate hard enough, they can activate a fan that will push a ball through a series of hoops. So the end product, on sale later this year for $80, is really taking a simple technological concept (brain activity) and skinning it with a complicated-looking function (fans, balls, hoops, circles of fire, etc). But much like a similar game called Brainball, it's still probably a parlor trick that excites a crowd. [Telegraph via gadgetreview]
