Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa Play Mindball: Watch the Stress


Mindball is a game that requires you to keep your cool. Unlike many sports or video games, Mindball reacts to your brainwaves and the stress level you are projecting (or feeling). Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa took on the challenge to see who would beat who in this mind over matter competition. While both are pretty energetic individuals, there could only be one winner.

The purpose of Mindball is to push the ball over the other player’s goal line. Each participant is wired to an Electroencephalogram (EEG) machine, which reads each player’s brainwaves and transfers them to a physical reaction of the ball in Mindball’s playground. The more stressed you are, the easier it would be for your rival to push the ball to your side.

The great thing about Regis and Kelly is their determination to make themselves look like fools – just like true entertainers. So who wins? Make your bet and then see the video to see if you were right.

Would you play this game? Do you think you’re calm enough to beat others? You can compete at London’s Science Museum on December 28th and 29th.
