Mindflex is about to go head-to-head

by Mark R

Some of you might be familiar with Mindflex. It is a toy that we have reported on before that allows the user/player to concentrate to create some kind of telekinesis to move a ball up and down through an obstacle course.

You’ll be pleased to know that Mindflex is about to incorporate the marriage of two minds. With Mindflex Duel, you can play against an opponent.

I’m not certain how it works. Is there supposed to be two balls that each player is controlling, or is there one ball that each player is attempting to control?

Yes, I don’t know how the two-player Mindflex is played, but I know that the game allows for cooperative play. I actually like games with cooperative play. I was playing a cool game the other day called Forbidden Island, and I liked that all players were working together for a common goal rather than playing against each other.

I wonder if I should do a review on that game. I also wonder if Mindflex didn’t make an appearance at CES 2011. The first time I saw Mindflex, it was at CES, but I can’t remember the year.

There is no official word of when Mindflex Duel will be available, but you can pre-order it now on Amazon for about $99.99.

Any game or workout that involves working the mind is positive and gets an A+ in my book because we as humans have only learned to use less than 10% of our brain and if we used even 50%, we would already have this ability to use telekinesis which I am currently practicing to master.

The “10% of your brain” claim is a myth. We use 100% of our brain, just not all at once. While you might respond “but WHAT IF WE COULD?!” its unnecessary. Each part of the brain has a job, and doing all those jobs at once would change nothing. Its like assuming using 100% of your posessions at the same time would somehow have a beneficial effect. As far as brain use at any point in time, even that is far more than 10%, even at rest. This myth is so old, yet I see/hear it so often! Anyway, about the product, it looks very interesting I’d like to try it out.
