The Force Trainer is a Star Wars-themed toy which creates the illusion of performing "Force"-powered telekinesis.[1]

The brain–computer interface toy, released as Uncle Milton Industries' Star Wars Science line in 2009, comes with a headset that senses the brain's electric fields (similar to an EEG) and relays the signals to a tube that uses a fan to blow a ball into the air. The harder the user concentrates, the harder the fan blows, and the higher the ball is suspended. The voice of Yoda instructs the user on developing their skills.[2]

In a 2010 episode of the College Humor series Bleep Bloop, the hosts Jeff Rubin and Pat Cassels tested out the toy, even having a co-worker, Brian Murphy, play Brain Age, a video game advertised as making you use your brain more, while he had the Force Trainer headset on.[3]
