Then there's NeuroSky, which develops several brain-computer interface technologies. NeuroSky created "MindFlex", a game that involves wearing a headset and moving a ball up and down through an obstacle course. In "Star Wars Force Trainer," the player becomes a Jedi knight in training by manipulating a ball within a clear 10-inch tall training tower. Utilizing dry EEG sensor technology, the headset reads and interprets your brainwaves. The deeper your concentration and mental focus, the greater your ability to move the object. (Note: some skeptics thought the game was a hoax when it was released in 2009).
