April 17, 2013, Stanford, Ca. – Puzzlebox Productions and
its mind-controlled helicopter are easy to spot at tech events like this
week’s Robot Block Party at Stanford University.

After all, the company’s
Puzzlebox Orbit is the device that’s whirling above everybody’s
heads—provided the person controlling it is concentrating hard enough.

The Orbit pairs up with
a NeuroSky EEG Mindwear mobile headset which communicates with a mobile
app. The headset communicates brain activity to that app loaded onto a
phone. Give your brain a challenge and your brain activity goes up,
eventually triggering the helicopter, which is linked to the phone
through infrared.

(If this sounds familiar, Puzzlebox has demoed the Orbit at shows like the CES 2013 event in Las Vegas this past January.)

Advertisment

The entire package—Orbit, headset, and infrared transmitter—sells for $189.
