The Force Trainer by Uncle Milton actually allows you to control a Jedi Training Remote with your mind, by tapping into cutting-edge brainwave technology. By utilizing dry neural sensor technology, you hear a special headset that reads and interprets your brainwaves and turns them into a movement of an object – just like a real Jedi. The deeper your concentration and the better mental focus you achieve, the greater your ability to move the Training Sphere up or down the Training Tower gets.
You’ll have to progress from a Padawan to Jedi Master as you master the use of “The Force” through 15 levels of training that increase after each other, making more challenging sequences, but thankfully you are being aided by training cues and instruction from the master of all Jedi Masters himself, Yoda. Additional Star Wars sound effects confirm accomplishment and provide encouragement throughout your training with the advancement and current level of your training being displayed on the Training Tower control panel for you to constantly keep track of. A great gift for any Star Wars fan, especially for kids…
The price of the Uncle Milton’s Star Wars Force Trainer is $80 USD.
Have you ever dreamed of moving an object with the power of your mind? Well Mattel’s Mindflex just makes that dream a reality now. You just need to put on a special headset and you’ll be ready to control the action as you never have before – with the power of your mind. By utilizing NeuroSky’s advanced ThinkGear technology, Mindflex reads your brainwave activity with the help of the wireless headset and translates that into action inside the game. The objective you have inside the Mindflex game sounds quite simple, you must navigate the ball through a mind-bending obstacle course as quickly as you can – traveling up and down, but you need to do that by using the power of your thoughts. You can customize the course with nine interchangeable obstacles making it possible to get hundreds of obstacle combinations so will never get boring to play.
But how does this all work? Whenever you concentrate, you generate brainwave activity in your frontal lobes and Mindflex uses a variation of EEG technology to “read” the intensity of these brainwaves via a special sensors positioned on your forehead and ears (inside the headset). These sensors do not generate or interfere with brainwaves, they only read what is already there, so you can be rest assured if you have some worries about possible negative effect. Once the Mindflex headset recognizes your brainwaves, it transmits a signal to a fan within the base of the game and your brainwaves actually control the power of the fan which in turn levitates the ball. The more effectively you concentrate, the stronger the fan blows and the higher the ball floats and by relaxing your mind the fan lowers the airflow, which in turn lowers the ball. Sounds fun and it really is, especially for kids, but is also quite entertaining for adults too.
The price of the Mattel Mindflex Game is currently $79.99 USD.
Meet the new I-Dog Soft Speaker – the snuggly, squeezable pooch that loves to get down to your music. After the big success that was the first plastic version of the I-Dog speakers and the later smaller mini versions now we also have a new plush model…
The new I-Dog soft speaker version is available in white, blue or pink so you can pick the one that best suit your taste or even have them all if you want to. The new I-Dog basically has the same functionality as the previous model meaning you can either plug your MP3 player, cell phone or any other device that outputs music or audio directly in the dog. This way your I-Dog becomes just like a portable speaker playing the music pretty loud for it’s size with very decent quality, but the dog speaker is much cuter than your average portable speaker. The other mode, which is more fun is to place the dog near an audio source and touch his nose, then using it’s built-in microphone the dog will pick up the rhythm of the music and start dancing and flashing in may different ways, but according to the music you are playing.
The new iDogs are available in white, blue or pink for $34.99.
