Toy company Uncle Milton has always tried to stay on the edge of modern and relevant toys and games, and they certainly do so with Star Wars Science – The Force Trainer II: Hologram Experience, where brain wave sensors in a headset read and interpret your level of concentration. We have a fair amount of expectation that a toy this cool will require a lot of parental “testing” as well.
In the Force Trainer II, you play the role of the Jedi. Mind-bending Star Wars scenes that exhibit incredible use of the force are recreated in the core of the game’s board, a triangle-like rising structure. While wearing a wireless headset that reads your brainwaves, you set about to accomplish certain tasks. The more you focus, the more you can do. This all runs through an included-in-the-price of purchase app on your tablet. Work your way through 10 levels of Jedi Mastery and advance from a lowly Padawan all the way to Jedi Master. But don’t worry. You are not left alone to learn the Jedi way, Master Yoda guides you and helps you concentrate.
More challenges will be released in the app as time goes on, especially in time for new Star Wars movie releases. This could be a great tangible way to help a little one who has trouble concentrating see what happens when you do it. It is fun, futuristic, and just plain cool. Look for this exciting and unique game come fall 2015 for $119.99, just in time for holiday gifting.
