Non-invasive Mind Control of Robots=

Thanks to my friends at the Drone User Group Network for this referral, the NSF just published a story about an interesting demonstration of EEG-based robot control. Using non-invasive, 64-electrode EEG cap, researchers at the University of Minnesota have demonstrated real-time commanding by having subjects mind-control quadrobot fliers. Although a provocative demonstration by virtue of the flying drones, the basic idea is that non-invasive brain-machine interfaces will yield ever richer degrees of control and eventually enable ever more effective human control of robots in our midsts, including wearable robot prostheses.
