Fear not my young apprentices! With the new force training kit, the force shall soon be strong in you!
Does that make me sound like a delusional loon? Yeah, I thought so too…
The Force Trainer, which is expected to sell for around $100, is a headset that allows you to use brain waves to manipulate a sphere located inside a 10-inch-tall transparent tube, just like Yoda did with Luke’s ship in Star Wars episode V.
If you’re wondering if you’ll be able to choke people from a distance after a few weeks of training, the answer is fortunately no. The device reads your brain activity, a bit like an EEG medical test, and then transfers it to a remote, which blows some air up and makes the sphere float inside the tube. As you become better, the unit will cue you in to help you progress to a new level of proficiency (from “Padawan” to “Jedi Master.”) Sounds fun doesn’t it? Unfortunately, there’s no word about availability or release date as of yet.
