Most likely the hottest toy trend for Christmas 2009 will be brainwave toys. At the Toy Fair 2009 several of these new toys were already revealed. We already reported about the Mattel Mindflex. Uncle Milton offers with the Star Wars Force Trainer a toy based on the same technological concept.
The Force trainer uses a headset that measures brainwave that get translated into a airstream produced by a fan inside the Force Trainer base.
Gizmodo has been at the Toy Fair 2009 in New York and tested the Force Trainer. You can see a video of the Force Trainer in action on Gizmodo. The Uncle Milton Force Trainer is supposed to sell for around $100 later this year.
The Star Wars franchise is still strong and so it makes sense to still market Star Wars toys even to the younger generation. Uncle Milton Industries will actually unleash a whole line of cool new Star Wars tech toys including Star Wars Optical Command Unit, Star Wars Darth Vader Robotic Arm, Star Wars Jedi Telescope and Star Wars Jedi Projector. More details on the Star Wars site.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
