Chris Cprek of Louisville’s LVL1 hackerspace demonstrates a EEG-controlled machine that blows up watermelons.

Brad and I created Mind over Melon. Ever since I was a boy, I’ve dreamed of exploding things with my mind. At LVL1, we now have the technology to make this dream come true. Using a hacked Star Wars Force Trainer, Arduinos, XBees and a solenoid valve, we’ve developed Mind over Melon. It’s a game where you focus your mind to an intense level of concentration; and explode a watermelon. It’s a combination of David Cronenberg’s classic sci-fi film “Scanners” and Gallagher.

If you want to see it in action, watch this video! But Chris and Brad, can haz more details?
