Visitors of all ages love playing Mindball, a fascinating biofeedback game based on electroencephalograph (EEG) technology.
Choose your opponent, slip on an electrode headband and let the fun begin. The electrodes monitor your alpha and theta brainwaves, which are the brainwaves of relaxation. As you relax your mind, your brainwaves move a ball across the table into your opponent's goal. Whoever stays the most relaxed wins.
Mindball is as fascinating for spectators as it is for the players, watching to see who can keep their cool the longest via live-action monitors. The exhibit also provides a lot of interesting information about brainwaves, EEGs and the importance of relaxation in everyday life.
