Big Bang Fair

Yesterday I went to the Big Bang Fair - it was just AMAZING!! My favourite was when I had to put a sort of headband on, with sensors on your forehead and ears. It detected brain waves which made the fan work, and using that you had to concentrate so that you could move the sponge ball around. The trouble was, I couldn't stop concentrating, which meant I couldn't lower the ball to get it through hoops and in a tube!

I was at a science fair a few years ago and they had a similar game where clearing your mind of brain waves was the goal to propel a puck across a goal line. I kept on winning for all the rounds I played. I conclude there is not much going on up there.

Haha. Yeah, I played the game Mindflex once, and my cousin, who was 3 at the time, was making the ball go like 10 feet in the air, and with the same headset, I couldn't get it off the ground. Pretty humiliating... :D
