Star Wars Force Trainer - Use The Force to Move the Trainer
Here's a chance for your gift recipient to practice all the Jedi mind tricks they've learned from watching countless Star Wars movies and episodes of The Clone Wars. This device is never seen in any of the movies, but it's still a great gift for fans because it allows you to use The Force (your own brainwaves) to move the device. Practicing with this toy won't allow you to pull an X-Wing Fighter out of a swamp while Yoda watches, but it will provide hours of fun.
May the Force be with you. The Force Trainer by Uncle Milton actually allows you to control a Jedi Training Remote with your mind, by tapping into cutting-edge brainwave technology. Utilizing dry EEG sensor technology, the headset reads and interprets your brainwaves. The deeper your concentration and mental focus, the greater your ability to move the Training Remote up or down the Training Tower. Progress from Padawan to Jedi Master as you master the use of The Force through 15 levels of training. Increasingly challenging sequences are aided by training cues and instruction from the master of all Jedi Masters himself, Yoda. Additional STAR WARS sound effects confirm accomplishment and provide encouragement throughout your training. Advancement and current level of your training is displayed on the Training Tower control panel.
