Control the game with your mind

Currently, if you want to control a game with your mind, you must be a Jedi-in-training, who learns to control what happens in the game by changing the level of your relaxation and concentration. This state of affairs is perfect as far as MindGames, an Icelandic startup, is concerned.

“When you play our games, you should not only be having fun, but also learning how to relax and concentrate when you want to – because that’s what it takes to win, in our games and in life,” says Deepa Iyengar, co-founder and CEO.
