Mindball for sale

They don't tell you how much it costs on the site, but Sweden's Interactive Productline are selling a biofeedback game table (which has appropriately Scandinavian furniture lines) called Mindball.

As interesting to me is the company, which has as its vision statement:

We will become Sweden’s leading development partner in commercialising research results within the experience industry.

With Menlo Park's Onomy Labs, this represents an interesting new twist on the design shop: one that specializes in deep (or deep-ish) technology transfer, rather than just surface. Nice.

I played a few games of Mindball at Doors 6 (2000). I won both the "traditional" relax version and our own variant, the super tense version (trying to pull the ball towards you). I pwn my mind?

Maybe you are just bi-polar and the timing was great?
