If you’ve ever dreamed of being a Jedi and having the ability to move objects with your mind, your dreams are about to come true. Mindflex is the new mental acuity game from Mattel, arriving this fall. It may not let you lift an X-Wing out of a Dagobah swamp, but you will be able to move a ball with the power of your mind.

A lightweight headset with sensors measures your brainwave activity. When you focus your concentration, a small foam ball will rise on a gentle stream of air. Relax your mind and the ball will drop. It’s not just mental, there’s also some physical stuff involved as you try to guide the ball through a customizable obstacle course.
