MindFlex Duel is finally available. Early in the the 2011 on CES 2011, we have known what this game is all about. Players stand on both sides, wearing mind frequency reader device on their head with a little clip on the ear, and then they can start pushing a floating balls through various kind of customizable obstacles to reach the opponent’s line.
I’m certainly intrigued by this game because it require nothing but your mind power to float the ball and push it forward. I’ve seen people failed to float them even they’ve sweat all the head wet, but some others can easily lift it up and push it. Is it really about mind power? focus? concentration? I don’t really know. But what I know is that “MindFlex Duel” will be a great ‘sport’ for the weekend to have fun with friends and family.
Nobody’s going to die using the Mindflex Duel, but it’s a similar mechanic. Strap on the headbands and challenge a weaker minded friend to a duel. Mindflex uses a variation of EEG technology to read the intensity of your brainwaves. When you concentrate, the ball rises. When you relax, it sinks.
If you are interested, you can buy it for $109.99 at Thinkgeek.
Already have it but it’s too difficult to play? Well, I don’t think it’s anything about mind power at all. I believe there is some sort of tricks that will let you move the ball easily. Ahh… have you seen that a cute baby can actually operate Mindflex with ease? Perhaps we (who can’t seems to lift up the ball!) should learn from baby after all…
