    Default Mind game where players use brainwaves to float ball through hoops unveiled

    Mind game where players use brainwaves to float ball through hoops unveiled...



    The Mind Flex comes with a brain-scanning headset which measures brainwaves and turns them into energy.

    The aim of the game is to concentrate hard enough to generate enough energy to power a fan which in turn causes a ball to levitate and move through a series of hoops.

    The toy made by Mattel, the world's largest toy manufacturer and makers of the Barbie doll , has been previewed in the US.

    The game is expected to cause much discussion at the Consumer Electronics Show 2009 which is currently taking place in Las Vegas.

    Mattel have remained tight lipped about how the product will work but say it will be released in America, later in the US year for $80.

    Games like Mind Flex are expected to be very successful in 2009 as the games industry becomes more on making gaming more intuitive.

    Last year, Emotiv Systems developed a helmet-like headset that, it claimed, let users control game characters with their thoughts.

    The device, issued with receptors, claims to be able to read activity among the brain's neurons. The player then "teaches" the device's software to associate thought patterns with commands.

    One of the drivers of that trend has been the success of Nintendo's Wii and its best-selling game Wii Fit where users move a board they stand on to control their game characters in a number of physical activities such as skiing or yoga.
