Over 300,000 sold! As successfully developed for NASA at the Stanford Research Institute.

The ESP trainer was developed under a NASA program by Russell Targ at Stanford Research Institute.

We have found that people are able to improve their ESP scores by using a machine just like this and get in touch with the part of themselves that is psychic. This is often called a clairvoyant ability, and can enhance your life in many surprising ways.

The player is presented with four colored squares. For each trial, one has been selected at random by the ESP Trainer. Your task is to choose the correct square.

If you succeed, you will hear a chime, feel a vibration, and see a large color picture. Otherwise, the system lights up the correct square, and you proceed with the next trial. The score indicator at the top counts the number of correct choices. Words of encouragement appear as you achieve the scoring levels of 6, 8. 10, 12 or 14 hits. After 24 trials you may begin a new game.

The game offers multi-sensory feedback, reinforcement, and an opportunity to Pass, meeting all the requirements needed for learning this skill. ESP Trainer improves your ability to recognize your intuitive impressions, and it can bring you to a level of intuitive awareness beyond anything you've experienced before.

The purpose of the trainer is to allow you to become aware of what it feels like when you psychically choose the correct square. When you don't have that special feeling, we encourage you to press the Pass button. (So this is not a "forced choice" test.)

In a year long NASA program with 145 subjects (under Contract 953653 NAS7-100) many were able to significantly improve their scores. Four of the subjects improved their scores at the hundred-to-one level or better. This approach has been used with surprising success on Wall Street. But of course, past results are no guarantee of future performance.

Because you are learning a new skill, slower is better than faster.
If you find yourself frequently scoring 12 or more, write to the developer at his web site

This game can provide the first steps toward experiencing and developing the psychic abilities hidden within us all.

I love the simplicity of this app

I’ve been using for about 6 weeks. The database appears to be completely random and the results follow a binomial distribution. You have 24 trials with a one in four chance of being correct ie a score of 6 is the mean, a score of 8 (mean plus one std deviation) indicated ESP ability present, a score of 10 (mean plus two std deviations) is Useful for Las Vegas, and a score of 12 (mean plus 3 std deviations is outstanding). A score of 14 will indicate physic level (only seen this a couple of times). I find I get the best results by playing at a moderate speed so that my thinking doesn’t get in the way (you don’t need to wait for the picture to fade before selecting the next tile). When in the zone I can score 10 very frequently and have even had a couple of 12s within a few minutes of each other. I find playing with headphones and listening to binaural beats seems to work best and the app is useful in gaining feedback on what being in the zone feels like.
After a year I still use this App daily, mainly as a warmup to remote viewing (which was one of it early uses at SRI). The multiple sensory feedback (vibration, sound, in addition to the visual picture) are equally important in providing positive feedback to successful selections. Those interested may wish to review Jack Houck’s conceptual model for his theory on how different modalities process perceptions.

Yes, it really works!

I have been using this amazing app for a number of months now. At first, I would hit a lot of “eights” and would become quite excited. I’d even take a picture each time I did so. For me, it has become a balance between being both quietly conscious pared with the love and excitement of an increasing awareness that consciousness is universal and omnipresent. It has become evident that time and distance are mere constructs. This knocked a lot of rust and crud off of my tuning mechanism!

This app has played a major role in my awakening to a much bigger universe than I had imagined. I now understand that all matters “para” and “psi” have the same undercurrent: consciousness. This has opened the door to my own success with phenomena that I would have (along with most of the world) poo-pood as a bunch of pseudoscientific horse pucky. My most sincere “thank you” for the wake up!

Yes, I am hitting twelve or more very commonly (daily at least) and had to delete anything below a ten to free up memory on this iphone!

I have found who I really am through this simple task

Thank you Russell Targ for this amazing contribution to mankind's development of the mind. My name is Jhon Bernal and I am a 21 year old psychology college student who has always had a nag for knowing or being able to sense something I couldn’t explain. You and this app have given me the knowledge and experience I have always been looking for. I am no expert but I have shared this app and my experience with all my alumni and just yesterday was my first day of my new semester and I was able to show more then 20 people the amazing power of the mind. This has single handily changed my life for the better. I will continue to improve my mind and body to reach new levels of success in this field of research. I will also dedicated my studies to your research and hopefully one day I can meet you or someone who can guide me to the next step in my mental evolution. Thank you again and I am forever grateful.
