Whether you look at it as a toy or as a cool way to sharpen focus and concentration, you’ll never look at remote-control flying machines the same way again.
The awesome thing about the Mind-Controlled UFO is that you’re the remote control, although you’ll need a little help from an app that works with both iPhone and Android devices.
With your smartphone transformed into a control panel that’s linked with the headband via Bluetooth, you’ll be able to make this UFO fly through the air with the power of your brainwaves, using your phone to adjust throttle, yaw, and pitch, control the sensitivity of concentration, and filter background electromagnetic interference.
While it might seem like you’re able to make the UFO defy gravity by merely thinking ‘Fly,’ the reality is a little more grounded in science than that, with the included headband and earlobe clip measuring the electrical activity produced by your brain (similar to an EEG). As you relax and concentrate, an included infrared transmitter connected to your smartphone’s audio port sends a wireless signal to the UFO, triggering the propellers into action as you use the control panel to actually control where the UFO goes.
Even though it does sort of feel like cheating since you have to use the remote instead of just thinking something like ‘turn left,’ the fact that your brain is able to make the UFO fly is still pretty cool.
Before you can use the power of your mind, you’ll have to use the power of your wallet because the mind-controlled UFO costs $229.95, and simply thinking about it won’t make it happen.
