Puzzlebox Brain-Controlled Helicopter
Yes, you read that correctly. The Puzzlebox Brain-Controlled Helicopter ($250) lets you control a floating orb using nothing but your brain power. The package includes a NeuroSky MindWave Mobile EEG headset, a Pryamid that serves as a home base and remote control, and the Orbit helicopter/orb itself. Simply select a flight path, slide on the headset, and focus — the software in the Pyramid will interpret your levels of concentration and relaxation and move the helicopter appropriately. A perfect gift for the sci-fi geek on your list.
