Hands on with Mattel's weird Mindflex Game

Now here’s something that will end up at the bottom of the toybox next Christmas. The Mindflex lets you control a floating ball around a little obstacle course. Air bumps and pops the ball through hoops and tubes and ends up frustrating you more than anything else.

If you’re really into biofeedback – the thing sense your concentration – or your paralytic and have little else to amuse yourself with, this might be for you. Otherwise, I expect the average pre-teen will eventually just sit on this thing out of general principle.

What you see here is really all it does: you put on a helmet and move a ball.
