Geeks of Doom's Exclusive Coverage of SDCC 2009

In terms of weird but awesome stuff found while roaming the floor of a big convention like San Diego Comic Con, Mindflex, a game that uses your own brain waves to levitate a foam ball through a board-game-sized obstacle course, tends to rank pretty high.

Mattel, who produces Mindflex, had their own booth set up separate from their main display to let people test out the game’s functionality. The ball can move up or down depending on the desired direction by wearing a headband that reads brainwaves. A dial positioned on the obstacle course is then used to move the ball from left to right.
