Video: Is MindFlex a Scam ("Sponge with a mind")

So I have received a lot of feedback on my previous post re MindFlex "Video: MindFlex - Controling the Real with your Brain ("look ma no hands")". Including this very interesting link to a video. It start with a user that use MindFlex, and then goes to a SPONGE that use MindFlex (see especially 2:15 and on).

So is this a scam? Does MindFlex just use the skin to close an electric circle and add some randomness to it? Personally, I dont think Mattel would go for a scam? What do you think?

Video: MindFlex - Controling the Real with your Brain ("look ma no hands")

A demo of MindFlex -- a new consumer toy by Mattel.
A $180 toy, that allow you to move a ball in a user-generated obstacle course. The mind control the speed of a fan that lifts the ball, you use your hand to turn the obstacle course, the results is amazing. Lots of fun.

As far as I can tell, there are 3 sensors here, more advance sensors include 6, 12, and even more sensors to allow more control.
