Back in the 1990s when Animanics was popular, both parents and children could watch together because of the dual-layered humor involved. Brainetics is like that. Brainetics teaches children how to do complex math problems in their head; those calculations that are so big your basic calculator runs out of LCD spaces to show them.

But is Brainetics safe for children? Is it just for children?

Let's dive in

Features & Claims - Brainetics

According to the official product site, Brainetics provides the following features & claims:

  • Develop a Mega-Memory
  • Master Amazing Math Feats
  • Get the Confidence to Suceed
  • Unlock Your Learning Potential
  • Great Addition for Any Student, Teacher, Parent or Adult Learner

Brainetics was developed by, "The Human Calculator," Mike Byster , a commodities trader who used his talents to make deals until his cousin, a Chicago-area high school teacher, asked him to teach his shortcuts to the students. Moved by the experience, Mike now devotes himself full-time to helping kids succeed in math.

Review - Brainetics Complaints, Fraud, Rip-Off, Scams...

When it comes to the ordering process, we found little complaints. There were a couple who had issues with the free trial (typical with this type of offer format). Actually, quite a debate blew up over on Complaints Board when a parent's child (presumably) took the credit card and purchased Brainetics straight off the website. The debate when pretty deep. We did love this early line from it:

"Brainetics did not commit fraud. Your child did..."

More people jumped in, pointing out that the complaint was misleading. Then a couple came to his defense and the whole thing turned into issues with internet safety.

Otherwise, from what we read, people seemed to love what Brainetics did for kids .

Update - 2012/07/01

As far as we can tell, and according to the As Seen on TV Lifers, the product still runs true and strong as it was since the last time we reviewed it. If y'all hear otherwise, let us know!

Decompressing w/ Dr. Ho's Back Belt [Review] - (I could have said, "pimpin' ").

Before I'd ever use a product like Dr. Ho's Back Belt, I would consult my chiropractor - who I haven't seen in awhile. What we found is that most people wouldn't take such an approach...

[Review] NutriBullet - It's Better Than Your Blender Because???? WTF?

I would swear that the NutriBullet is just a Magic Bullet with a different plastic skin and fonts & iconography. I assume that if I want to make veggie smoothies I could just use a Magic Bullet, but apparently I can't. Or something like that. I'm still looking.

Review - InstaBulb w/ Anthony Sullivan - Another Classic My Grandfather Used

This is one of those times where my grandfather bought something he wanted to see on TV and it was a great idea. I went into the garage and click the switch when I realized the light-bulb didn't look like an ordinary light-bulb.

Neutrogena SkinID [Review] - Free Skin ID Evaluation

With so many acne products out and about, on television, on the shelves, at the impulse counter, next to the Redbox and vending machines...It's enough to make one wonder as to why the competition is so fierce. Is it because no single product works well enough? Or is it because people have a hard time telling which product works for them. Maybe Neutrogena is onto something with the SkinID.
