What is Mindball Play?
Mindball is a physics based racing game that is easy to learn but hard to master. Play in multiple game modes over various tracks and see who can be the first to cross the finish line. Enable power-ups to allow a more diverse racing experience with ghost-balls, oil slicks, lasers and much more.
You can move the ball in Mindball Play using many different devices. Of course using the standard keyboard or a game pad is default. To move the ball directly with the mouse is an other option. If you have Tobii Eye Tracker you can use that device to actually move the ball. But, the key feature of Mindball Play is that you can move the ball using your brain by wearing one of our wireless headbands. Many of the inputs are possible to combine, as the headband and the game pad e.g. The better you focus the better control you’ll have over the balls movement.
Play online, on LAN or in splitscreen to test your skills versus other racers. Try Single Player for a less hectic experience and race versus the leaderboards in Time Trial. Watch how other players race by enabling Ghost-balls and henceforth improve your own racing.
Connect and enable the wireless headband to move the ball with your brain. High and stable focus will move the ball along the track to eventually cross the finish line, but be careful not to get too excited! Lose your focus and you lose control over the ball too.
With continuous practice you can improve your focus to eventually master your mind and transfer this mindset into your everyday life.
Mindball Play for Science Centers is a standalone exhibit with specially designed headbands possible to attach. Your visitors will be able to move the ball in Mindball Play just by being focused and relaxed. They can play by themselves or compete against a friend or actually play four at the time, competing against each other in who will be the best to focus and thus win the race!
The science center version is designed to be used without any other interaction with the software, for the visitor, but wearing a headband and focus.
Mindball Play for Rehab is meant for people with physical disabilities so that they can play a game without the traditional inputs such as a game pad and keyboard. The game is possible to play just by being focused wearing a wireless headband. It is also possible to play with Tobii Eye Tracker. These two inputs can also be combined for a more interactive experience. The menus can be managed with Tobii Eye Tracker, should you prefer that.
Furthermore the person playing with these inputs can play against another person that uses any input including the traditional ones e.g. a game pad.
Mindball Play for Schools provides a fun addictive game to train focus. A training device that the pupils actually are keen to use. Each student gets a personal account where they and their teacher can track the development of their focus ability over time.
Start off class with ten minutes of training with Mindball Play and the game will provide a calm and focused class ready to take in new knowledge.

We used Mindball Play at the kickoff-event of a major pharmaceutical company. Up to four opponents could race their marbles through the course. The players quickly got a hang of how to influence the speed by their concentration and focus and also how to steer by tilting their heads. It was a fun experience for both Players and spectators and gave many good moments of enjoyment.
