The days of mind control are upon us, albeit in games.  Mattel’s latest, the Mind Flex game, tests a user’s concentration by challenging them to place a ball through a number of hoops.  Sounds simple, right?  Actually, there is no game pads, just a brain scanning device.  The user wears the device, and through thought alone has to power a fan that will float the ball through the game’s obstacles.

We’ll try to make our way over to Mattel’s CES booth to get a hands on, but you can expect the product to launch later this year for about $80.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
