Star Wars Fans - 'Use The Force'

By Meera Dolasia on January 9, 2009

Even if you are not a a Star Wars fan, at some point we have all wished we could Use The Force - that is, make something happen by merely thinking it. 

You wish will soon be granted - that is if you buy these toys from Uncle Milton's or Mattel

Uncle Milton's Force Trainer, is equipped with a head trainer that uses brainwaves to move a ping-pong ball sitting in a 10-inch tall clear plastic tower.

The Force Trainer is based on a technology that has been used by heart specialists for many years. A wireless headset reads the brain's activity - which, if completely focused on moving the ball, will activate a training remote situated at the base of the toy. This in turn creates a flow of air, that helps the ball rise within the tower.

As the player concentrates on the ball, appropriate music and video clips emanate from the Force Trainer, helping him/her focus. 

Mattel's Mind Flex works similarly, using brain-wave activity to move a ball through a tabletop obstacle course (pictured above). Both toys are expected to hit toy stores this fall and cost between $90 - $100USD. Time to start saving those allowances!
