Robert Schneider, frontman of the indie rock band  Apples in Stereo, has modded an EEG sensor-based Mattel MindFlex toy to make a device that plays an analog synth entirely through a user’s brain activity. The Teletron, as he calls it, is a DIY gadget (Schneider has uploaded a ‘how to make your own Teletron at home’ video on the web) that plays on a high or low pitch depending upon the intensity of the user’s thoughts.

Here’s a video of Schneider demonstrating how to use the Teletron:
