A toy that reads your brain waves to manipulate a foam ball sounds fun -- until said toy begins manipulating other things, too. Like your bodys pain receptors. Doesnt sound too thrilling to us, but a few geeks apparently thought itd be a great idea.

According to GeekoSystem, some folks at Harcos Laboratories took Mattels Mindflex and hacked it to deliver a painful electric shock to the user. Strap the device on your head, and challenge yourself not to think -- not even a little bit. If your brain is a little active, youll get a little shock. The more activity inside your head, the more intense of a shock youll feel. If youre into this kind of thing, theres a step-by-step how-to on the Harcos blog. Attempt at your own risk.
