Mental Samurai

Fox put contestants in a spin

Rob Lowe hosts this mental obstacle course that sees contestants battling the boundaries of their minds to answer questions accurately with speed and precision. Not only does the course test their acumen in categories of knowledge, memory, puzzles and sequencing, but players must also contend with being physically transported around the set at high speeds in a specially designed capsule capable of rotating 360 degrees. People from all walks of life compete in the game that anyone can play, but almost no one can win.

ionoco's stage control system powers the entire game, providing all the technology to drive the giant screens, clocks, sounds and most importantly Mental Samurai's robot, Ava! The system is loaded with all the necessary game rules, graphics and sound effects, resulting in a simple workflow to deliver this exciting studio game show.
