Playing Mind Games

This pic is of The Ascent, a creation of XXXY (Yehuda Duenyas); it is a mechanical game that is powered by your brain.  You are fitted with an EEG brainwave sensor & a safety harness.  As your brainwaves register focused concentration you ascend into the air.  Modeled after the gaming industry, the higher you go the harder this game makes it for you to concentrate; if your concentration is broken your upward ascent is stopped as well.  The goal is to make it 30 feet into the air where you are rewarded with an amazing light show!

What a cool way to bring the mechanics of technology & the brain together!

Just goes to show that through the power of your mind, you can ascend to new heights!  Happy Friday!!!
