Thanks Ken Henderson!

Look for The Force Trainer on store shelves this year! Basically you wear a simplified medical instrument which reads a certain electrical activity produced by your brain (Electroencephalography--EEG). This instrument then wirelessly transmits the signal to a fan which pushes a ping-pong ball up a transparent tube. You begin to focus your attention to that part of the brain and achieve better results.

Expect to find a number of EEG-based games this year. I remember reading about EEG games about 20 years ago in a book called "The Last Book You'll Ever Read" by Vancouver-based futurist Frank Ogden aka Dr. Tomorrow. Back in about 1993 he was playing demos of EEG games with his mind. One game was a skiing game where you had to psychically control a skiier down a mountain through a slalom course. He predicted that future games would have you flying a fighter jet craft with the control stick while activating various weapons and the pilot's POV with your brain.

I remember stealing the prototype to a Soviet fighter, back in the 80s, and it used thought for some of it's controls. It was funny, I was thinking "Missile. Missile... MISSILE!", when I had to shoot down a hostile bogey, but nothing happened. Then I remembered I had to think in Russian.

Good times.

True story.
