Launceston, Australia (PressExposure) March 31, 2009 -- Well itâs not anymore, because this is exactly what you can do with the latest star wars toy called âthe Force Trainerâ which turns Science fiction into reality as it utilises your brainwaves to levitate a sphere within a tube.
The Star Wars Force Trainer was created by Uncle Milton, a US based company which produces Science-based toys. The toy uses EEG technology to transmit your alpha and beta brainwaves from a head set to wirelessly drive a motor which powers a fan that sends a sphere up a tower. You can progress from Padawan to Jedi Master, as you use âThe Force Trainerâ through 15 levels of Jedi training. Along the way you will be encouraged by Obi Wan, Darth Vader and, of course, Yoda helping you with training tips and sound effects. The better your concentration, the more you are able to control the fan and the sphere rises.
Peter and Anne-Maree Harback, Directors of Coolthings Australia, visited the 2009 Toy Fair in Melbourne on Saturday 21st March and gave the Force Trainer a run for its money, Mr Harback said "When I first heard about this new gadget I really didn't know what to expect, but when I actually got to try the thing out I was amazed that it really works. At first I couldn't get the ball to levitate but after some wise tips from the Uncle Milton crew I finally was able to tap into the force and make the ball rise."
Before word got out that the Force Trainer was being launched Uncle Milton were receiving a couple of email enquiries per day, after the news broke they got a massive 40,000 emails asking when this product is going to be available for purchase. The Star Wars Force Trainer is set to be the most eagerly anticipated toy release of the year.
The Star Wars Force Trainer hasn't arrived in Australia yet so Star Wars fans will have to wait until September 2009 to see these in stores; in the mean time you can visit http://www.coolthings.com.au/star-wars-force-trainer-p-1026.html for further information, videos and images, and to pre-order your very own Force Trainer.
