Control Your iPhone With Your Mind

The New PLX XWave Device

The same NeuroSky technology behind Mattel’s MindFlex Game (click here to read all about it) is the driving ‘force’ (pun intended) of this new headset that allows you to control your iPhone (or iPod or iPad) with your brainwaves.

According to the maker, PLX Devices, “By safely detecting your brain’s rhythm through a small sensor contact gently placed on the skin of your forehead, XWave gives you a window into your mind. Grounded in medical research and patents, the XWave senses your attention and meditation levels. You will be able to control and float objects in video games by simply thinking about it, or train your mind to focus and relax on command.”

There are currently only four compatible applications listed on the PLX Devices website. The XW training app is described like this:  “Start with this fun free App to learn how to use your XWave headset. This app includes a brainwave visualizer and an attention and meditation trainer.” Sounds like fun, doesn’t it?

While you may not be exactly comfortable wearing this headset on the bus to work, using a brainwave reading device in a more private setting to engage with the training software could prove to be a valuable exercise in biofeedback.

There is also a meditation application available. And another application, “Tug of Mind,” reads the brain patterns of the player as they try to relax, while a Digimi generated character aims to do the opposite.

Put this one on your holiday gift list, folks!

ESP Trainer for the iPhone


ESP Trainer for the iPhone


The ESP trainer was developed under a NASA program by Russell Targ at Stanford Research Institute.

The good people at ESPResearch.com say, “We have found that people are able to improve their ESP scores by using a machine just like this and get in touch with the part of themselves that is psychic. This is often called a clairvoyant ability, and can enhance your life in many surprising ways.”

It’s a simple concept of selecting which of four colored squares the application has chosen.

In a year long NASA program with 145 subjects (under Contract 953653 NAS7-100) many were able to significantly improve their scores. Four of the subjects improved their scores at the hundred-to-one level or better.
