Mind Flex: Real world brain controlled game by Mattel

PSFK reports:

… 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.

In this video, a representative explains that the sensors detect and measure theta wave output, which as you concentrate, your brain creates more of.  After measuring those waves, it then converts them into a signal and sends it to the game unit, which in turn powers tiny little fans.  The harder you concentrate, the faster they spin and the higher the ball floats.

The brain waves signal to a computer, which in turn signal to real life fans, making it sort of a brain-computer interface hybrid. As more and more of these games go mainstream, the interest in neuroscience will grow as the results become more tangible. Perhaps they will also being to change some views toward non-materialism.
