Headset senses brain activity and sends messages to the game platform.
Using advanced technology, Mindflex Duel headsets sense brain activity and send messages to the game platform. Strap on a headset, connect the sensor clip to your earlobe, and align the strap's metal sensor so it's flush against your forehead. Your brain activity will trigger the game platform's motors, which will propel the ball. Bulk up your brain, sharpen your focus, and battle your friends with this hands-free challenge!
Move the Ball with "Mind-Eye" Concentration
Though a gentle stream of air from the platform helps the ball rise, it's up to your own powers of concentration to move it through the obstacles. Defy gravity and sharpen your mental focus to move the ball laterally and vertically--concentrate to make the ball rise, and relax your mind to let it fall. Mindflex Duel comes with an instruction manual with tips and practice exercises to help you achieve "mind-eye" concentration.
Mental Activity Meters, located on each end of the platform, reflect your brain-activity levels. As your powers of concentration become stronger, light will climb from the bottom to the top of the meter and turn from red to green.
Design Mind-Bending Obstacle Courses
Test your mental acuity by designing your own obstacle courses on the game platform. Mindflex Duel comes with spinning and stationary hoops, hurdles, and chutes that you can arrange and reposition according to game requirements, skill level, or your own imagination. The obstacle pieces are outfitted with pegs that fit securely into holes on the game platform.
Five Interactive Challenges
Mindflex Duel offers five interactive games that are fun to play but a challenge to master. The gameplay for each can be altered for solo, head-to-head, or co-op battles. Use the game platform's two position toggle buttons to select both the game and player mode.
Mindflex Duel game platform, two headsets, four foam balls, and gameplay instructions.

This is a great party game! It sets up quick, toss on the headset, put the ear lobe adapter on, and you're ready to go. The practice and single player modes for this are ok, but the dueling mode is where this game really shines.
We had a really good time just playing push back and forth, and it's hilarious watching the faces people make to concentrate. Some squint, some strain, and then you end up laughing at the other person, lose your concentration, and they start winning so you have to get back into it. There's a whole strategy to just distracting the other person. And it's not just for the 2 people playing. Everyone else has a good time watching, laughing, etc. And it's a good game for taking turns (we do next up plays winner).
Overall, if you're looking for a good goofy social game where everyone can laugh and look goofy, this is a great choice.
I read some reviews of people saying they use it for meditation and to improve concentration for kids with ADD. My oldest daughter has Asperger's and had been having some anxiety issues. When she played this game, she was struggling to lower the ball (you are supposed to STOP thinking to drop the ball), so I told her to try pretending to sleep (close her eyes and breathe deep). It worked immediately for her. The next week, the school nurse called saying that my daughter was having a racing heartbeat and was nauseous. I spoke with her on the phone and told her "I want you to drop the ball, just like on Mindflex. Close your eyes, breath deep." Because of her Asperger's, she is a "concrete" thinker and being able to envision herself playing the game makes the difference for her. She calmed down immediately, and she now uses the "relaxation" technique for herself.
This game is fun for the whole family. Our kids are 19, 13, 8 and they all love it. One night, my mom came over to hang out with the girls, and they even got her playing it. What a blast!
P.S. For those reviewers who say they cannot control the ball (no predictability), that's the problem. The more you try the worse you will do. You need to be able to clear your mind, relax, and focus only and calmly on the ball. If you're angry or excitable, it is not likely to work well. It's a shame to have your Mindflex collecting dust!
I LEVITATE A BALL WITH MY MIND.
I thought it was only 2011, not "the future!"
There are many single player options, but the best is playing with a friend or a group at a party in tournament style in a mental tug of war using concentration. Screw beer pong, I'm playing drinking games with this new toy! I would play this if I was 6 or 80 years old, it's really just awesome. And awesome is an understatement for the glory of this game.
We got the first Mindflex for my son's ADHD. Now that we have a two player version, him and his friend can play, have fun and it assist with his attention issues. He has more fun with this game than the first. The social aspect really takes it to the next level. He has no shame with this toy, he thinks its pure fun and not assisting with his attention issues. Before he would lose interest after 10 mins, now because of the dual player, he stays at it much longer and doesn't loose interest.
I also took it to my weekly card night. Several of my buddies have children, that have ADHD. I brought it just to show and let them know. Well lets say we stopped playing cards and had a tournament with this toy (boys will be boys).
With two player version now families and friends can play against each other, and I have to say it makes for a great friendly, fun competition. We also used at family night, and my daughter who does not have ADHD wants her friends to play as well. I highly recommend this toy!
Only one concern so far and that is when it is even lightly bumped it turns off and restarts. I may check the batteries to see if they are seated completely (I haven't yet because they haven't stopped playing) I hope that it isn't always that sensitive, but the kids adjusted to the issue well. It certainly hasn't stopped the play. I will update later.
Part of the reason I got this game is because one of my players has attention issues. It has been a little more of a challenge for him- you can really tell he struggles with concentration when he's dueling. He still is enjoying the challenge and I'm hoping it will help him with improving his concentration. More on this later, too...
Everyone from 5-adult had a great time that weekend playing the game. It kept the kids busy for hours. I did check the batteries to see if they were loose, but they were not. Don't know what causes it to restart when it is bumped lightly, or the table it is on is bumped- I just hope it doesn't get worse. It didn't stop the fun, at least.

great concept if it works, but the machine is not really practical enough in real world to be sensitive enough to do all the tricksPublished 1 month ago by Xpert

It works if you relax your face or concentrate really hard, I'm not convinced it works on your brain waves. It seems to work better if I'm readying something. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Angelina
