In 2009, one of the most innovative Star Wars toys of all-time was launched. The Force Trainer enabled fans of all ages to move and control an object with the power of their mind. It quickly became a hit with Star Wars fans and one of the favorite toys of BCI enthusiasts. In 2015 Uncle Milton’s Star Wars Science brand is introducing The Force Trainer II: Hologram Experience, featuring mostly the same EEG technology we know from the first version, but this time instead of levitating a ball, Jedi’s will move and control hologram images with the power of their mind.Imagine that you could raise an X-wing from the Dagobah swamp just like Luke Skywalker, battle Darth Vader, or build your own lightsaber with just the power of your mind! These magical scenes are re-created through hologram images and a wireless headset with EEG brainwave sensors that read and interpret your levels of concentration. The more you focus, the more successful you are in moving and controlling the hologram image and successfully completing the Jedi challenge.
The hologram images and Jedi challenges come through a companion app included with the purchase of the product and powered by the user’s tablet device which projects these holograms into the unique Jedi themed training base. There are 10 different Jedi training levels through which fans can advance from Padawan to Jedi Knight to Jedi Master, with instruction and guidance from Jedi Master Yoda. Additional Jedi challenges will also be available for download on updated versions of the app as new Star Wars movies are released.
“This toy captures the imagination of aspiring Jedi everywhere as they learn to use and control the power of their own concentration to activate fantastic Star Wars adventures. The combination of this advanced
technology, compelling game play, and real science application makes for a truly unique product that fits the spirit of the Star Wars brand”, said Ken
Malouf, VP of Marketing & Product Management at Uncle Milton earlier this year at CES 2015.
The product is expected to hit retail stores in Fall 2015 with an estimated SRP of $119.99.
