The technology is finally here and consumer-accessible for the production of gadgets like the Synapse mind-controlled car. This groundbreaking invention enables the user to direct this little toy vehicle by willing it with his mind.

It might sound simple, but actually getting the wheels to turn is quite the mental effort. You need to concentrate long and hard enough for the device to take your directions seriously before it obeys you. This ensures accuracy. A brilliant application for Alejo Bernal's hi-tech plaything is teaching sufferers of Attention Deficit Disorder and ADHD to focus, because it provides positive feedback through motion and lights on the translucent acrylic shell. The Synapse brain-operated car is used with an electroencephalography (EEG) headset that reads signals through your scalp for truly futuristic and therapeutic game play.
