This year’s Toy Fair in New York features a number of new Star Wars toys that combine the ways of the Force and real science. In a recent article from the Official Star Wars Blog, fans of Star Wars can catch a glimpse of a new line of educational toys from Uncle Milton, set to hit stores later this year. The line includes a couple of habitariums, a robotics kit that allows one to build a working replica of Darth Vader’s hand, and a device to train young Padowans in the ways of the Force.
The Star Wars Force Trainer is a very unique piece of technology. With this device, the user puts on a small headpiece similar to the ones used by Jedi starfighter pilots. This headpiece measures brain wave activity, which in turns levitates a small probe situated within a cylinder. The harder the user thinks about trying to lift the device, the higher the probe will rise. This set will retail for around $129.
For parents who want to raise their children in the ways of the Force without spending a ton of credits, they may want to check out the Star Wars Darth Vader Electronic Arm. With this kit, one can built a real working replica of the Sith Lord’s robotic hand. The electronic arm will retail for $44.99.
