Lake Wales students learn true meaning of brainpower

Posted: Updated:
LAKE WALES (FOX 13) -

Luke Skywalker, you have nothing on the middle schoolers at Edward Bok Academy in Lake Wales. They just got two neurohelmets that allow them to move objects on a computer screen simply by using their mind.

The neurohelmets pick up on your brain waves and transmit them to your computer.

Joshua Fell is the 27-year-old instructor, who lobbied his principal to buy them. When they arrived, he was thrilled.

"I thought it was Christmas," he told FOX 13 on Wednesday.

Fell uses the neurohelmets to teach the kids about the brain and its untapped potential. His principal hopes something else dawns on the students.

"[That] I am just as smart as anybody else. I can do anything anyone else can do," said Damien Moses.

The helmets cost $300 each. Right now, the school only has two. It would like to get more and is looking for people who could help pay for them. For further information, call (863) 638-1010.
