A tin foil hat is triangular and silvery (a mottled dark gray to white with some bluish tones).
When a blockhead begins to act based on a tin foil hat, blue/light blue particles will emit between the action and the blockhead and the acted upon block will have an image of the tin foil hat superimposed over it. The hat will only plan one action at a time and may abort player-specified actions.
Thus the only "mind control" a tin hat resists is the influence of a player.
When playing with multiple blockheads in single-player, it is not unusual for there to be more blockheads than the player can keep occupied. The use of a tin foil hat makes a blockhead self-directed, thus it will harvest and mine without being instructed. The tin foil hat can be removed to more easily allow any items it has collected to be transferred elsewhere.
In the world of 'The Blockheads', the only "mind controller" is the user of the device. When the user gives a blockhead a task, the blockhead will mindlessly obey. With the introduction of the tinfoil hat came the introduction of a unique blockhead quality of 'free will' for the blockheads, where their mind is not being controlled by a 'god', or 'The User of the Device', or 'Player', which is quite a charming and humorous perspective in the world of 'The Blockheads', where each blockhead is considered as a unique individual with free will who do not like us (the user of the device) controlling them.
