Italian designer Riccardo Giraldi’s Scalextric track is an interesting way to model the deep focus needed to race cars around a circuit. Using Arduinos and some sort of weird headset, the players control their cars with, well, their minds—and get a bit of extra boost when they blink.


Giraldi’s extremely slick showreel doesn’t shed much light on the science behind his project but who cares when it’s mind-controlled cars?
