Control your iPhone with your mind

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on September 7th, 2010

If only you could command your iPhone with your thoughts? Maybe you can after all. That’s the idea behind the XWave, a headset that turns your brain’s electrical activity into signals that can control your phone.

Details are scarce, but it is basically an interpreter, a middle man if you will, that allows your head and your iPhone to communicate. The XWave has a pad that rests on your forehead, picking up the tiny electrical signals that change along with your changing thoughts. The headset comes bundled with some apps that let you control your music library etc, and PLX is seeking out developers to create new apps for the headset as well.

Yoda light-up Christmas tree topper

Yoda light-up Christmas tree topperThis is some extreme geekery right here. By placing Yoda on top of the Christmas tree, it allows nerds to worship their Jedi Master from below as is only proper, because you are just a padawan with a closet full of collectibles, while Yoda is…Yoda.

In the hierarchy of Star Wars Christmas tree decorating Yoda must be on top, just as Jar-Jar must be at the bottom. Forget the usual glowing star. Yoda has a light up LED lightsaber. Only $39.99 nerd points.

Star Wars Jedi Bath Robes

Star Wars Jedi Bath RobesCheck out these Jedi Bath Robes. They’re perfect for all of the nerdy Jedi secret meetings you and your friends have. You know, the ones where you re-enact classic scenes and spank each other with lightsabers saying. “Thank you sir, may I have another?”

Good times no doubt. And you’ll remain comfy through all of your shenanigans, since these Jedi robes are made of soft 100% cotton velour. Of course, the Jedi logo is embroidered on the front. And the hood is large enough that you can hide your face in shame when you wear it in public.

Lightsaber Nunchucks look pretty while they break your face

Lightsaber Nunchucks look pretty while they break your faceSome guy who couldn’t decide whether he wanted to be Obi-Wan Kenobi or Bruce Lee, finally opted for both and created these awesome Lightsaber Nunchucks. Sadly this bit of geek weaponry didn’t find us in time for Christmas, but you can make a pair have them all ready to go for next year.

At least your victim will be mesmerized by their glowing awesomeness before being knocked unconscious. Instead of seeing stars, they’ll hear rave music. You can check out a “how to” guide online and make your own.

Star Wars lightsaber chopsticks

Star Wars lightsaber chopsticks
If you think eating with chopsticks is hard, why not practice with a cool pair? Like these lightsaber chopsticks for instance. Don’t worry, they won’t slice everything they come into contact with.

They will make you eat Chinese food with all of the nerd grace of a Jedi though. They were made by Kotobukiya and shown off at the Star Wars Celebration in Japan a few weeks ago. I would imagine that two Jedis dining in the same restaurant would immediately recognize these and size each other up, then fight or not fight depending on lightsaber color.

Create your own lightsaber like a real Jedi

Create your own lightsaber like a real Jedi
You can buy any number of lightsabers. Whether in lamp form, Wii attachment, or even a lightsaber training game. But this Master Replicas Force FX Lightsaber Construction Set allows you to mix and match pieces, creating your own custom weapon.

The kit includes 3 pommels, 3 handles, 3 center bands, 3 front bodies, 3 emitters and a tri-color blade that can switch between red, green and blue. That gives you over 1000 possible combinations. One downside to this cool toy is that the blade is only illuminated by a single LED, which means you won’t get the “rising out of the hilt” effect when you turn it on. But it does have all the motion activated sound effects. All the pieces are metal, so your lightsaber will look very cool and authentic.
