Mind-controlled Scalextric v2

After the success of the first experiment, here is an update bringing multiplayer and new functionalities!

The idea is simple: what if you could control slot cars with the power of your mind?
Mind Scalextric is an R&D project that combines the latest technologies and lets people race together using their minds.

The higher your level of attention is, and the quicker your car goes!
If you are a pro you can also use the boost – all you have to do is to blink your eyes!

The project has been showcased at the Ultimate Show and Tell 2011 at Fallon as well as at the B-Reel London Party together with another of our experiments called EELS !
