Most people think that mind control is something that only exists in the movies yet it is an ability that nearly everyone would love to have. With many thanks to advancements in technology and our understanding of the human mind we are starting to learn that mind control is indeed a reality and to prove that there are a variety of gadgets popping up on the market that you can control using only your mind.
1 – Star Wars Science Force Trainer
There are plenty of grown adults who will tell you that ever since they saw the first Star Wars movie back in 1977 they have dreamt of controlling things with the power of their mind. In fact it is fair to say that the majority of people who grew up watching Star Wars still dream to this day of wielding a lightsaber around and using the force to throw objects across the room.
If this sounds like something you can relate to then you will no doubt be overjoyed to learn that toy companies have managed to give you the chance to fulfil one side of your childhood dream. It is unlikely that you will get to use a real lightsaber anytime soon but you can control things with the power of your mind by using the Star Wars Science Force Trainer. The main goal with this gadget is to lift and keep aloft a ping pong ball by concentrating your brain power via a wireless headset. This may seem impossible or make you think there has to be some trick to lifting the ball up with your mind but there are plenty of people out there who claim to have been able to use the power of the force with this gadget.
