forcetrainerhack cc Hacking the Force Trainer

Zibri did some investigative hacking with the Force Trainer (brainwave controlled toy) and posted a basic interface schematic using a MAX3233 to interface with his PC via serial. It turns out the EEG headset is sending out data as ASCII characters @ 57600 baud – should make for some quick and easy hacking! Time to add mind control to those microcontroller projects.
