    San Jose’s Neurosky invented the technology that goes into Mattel's MindFlex game.

    Racking your brain for an unusual Christmas present? How about one that truly racks your brain?

    The object of Mattel’s MindFlex is to move an air-driven foam ball through an obstacle course with your thoughts. This new game, out just in time for the holidays, employs a wireless headset that can electronically read your brain waves.

    The more you concentrate, the higher the ball levitates.The more you relax, the lower the ball goes.

    San Jose’s Neurosky invented the technology that goes into this game. Neurosky also has a product that lets you go online and manipulate a virtual character with your thoughts. Relax and he will lift virtual cars. Focus really hard and he’ll start them on fire.

    Maybe someone should give Drew Barrymore a heads up on this.
