Watch Me Levitate a Remote Control Helicopter with My Mind
“The first thing you need to know about mind-controlled helicopters is that they feed on relaxation or concentration. So when the Puzzlebox Orbit started lifting off the ground before I could even start to meditate, I have to assume it’s because CES had already reduced my brain to ooze.
The video above was shot after multiple attempts, when I’d finally coerced my mind into getting hyperactive enough to prevent the helicopter from immediately flying away. Usually it’s not that easy — Puzzlebox CEO Steve Castellotti recommends simple brain exercises, such as solving math problems or running through the alphabet in another language to get the chopper airborne.”
