I was reminded of this for a project i wanted to do for a class (instructable coming soon ;-)), and i also found a "Star Wars force trainer" on amazon for 30 bucks.
Here is the simple step by step instructions on how to turn a force trainer into a working EEG you can see with your computer.
special thanks to frontier nerds for the initial code and the hack of a similar toy.
Step 1: What you'll need
- Star Wars Force Trainer toy
- A computer running processing and the arduino development enviroment
- solid core wire
- basic soldering supplies
