Mindball - a possible cure for for ADHD in the classroom?

Imagine a game where you win by relaxing. Mindball uses sensors to map particular brainwaves and moves a ball toward the less relaxed (or more stressed) player. The winner scores a goal when the ball travels to the other end of a playing table. Spectators can monitor the games progress on the table, as well as viewing an EEG displayed on a monitor.

The product Mindball Game originates from the prototype Brainball which is developed by the Smart Studio at The Interactive Institute.

I can envision this product and the Mindball Trainer being used to "train" young minds to be more relaxed, and receptive to learning in the classroom.
