Bud's Weekly Geek-out :: Exploding watermelons with your mind
Sep 12, 2012webmeister Bud
Today on Bud’s Weekly Geek-out . . . in 2009, a toy called Star Wars Force Trainer was released. It consisted of a wireless headset and, well, a ball in a tube.
The headset was actually an EEG sensor — as in, it was capable of reading and interpreting brain waves — and it would put you through mental focus exercises to stimulate your brain and raise the ball in the tube.
Well, not content with moving a ball in a tube, a group of hackers from Kentucky modified one of these Force Trainers to explode watermelons with their minds.
