Mindball: The Meditation / Relaxation Game

Moving objects with your mind!! (the science behind telekinesis / psychokinesis)
A few years ago I had the opportunity to play Mindball: a two-person meditation / relaxation game controlled by players’ brain waves. The headband detects your alpha and theta brainwaves, which is associated with imagination and creativity. The purpose of mindball is to out-relax and out-focus your opponent by calming yourself and going into a deep state of meditation. The ball on the table moves away from you toward your opponent’s goal, indicating which player is winning.
By focusing on the breath and using visualization techniques, you are able to “win” the game.
