I’ve come across a fair bit of scepticism about NeuroSky, it’s associated products and whether or not they actually work as intended.
The video below is a review of the Mindflex by 3 neuroscientists, from their preliminary testing they seem impressed by the device and try several different methods to trick the Mindflex into working without any success. I think the video below is pretty good proof that the Mindflex toy and it’s neuroheadset does provide neurofeedback using EEG.
The Mindflex, created by Mattel and developed using NeuroSky technology, has now been outdated by a new version called the Mindflex Duel
