Science news at the speed of thought

Mind controlled android robot

Researchers at the CRNS-AIST Joint Robotics Laboratory, are working on ways to control robots via thought alone.

From the video: "Basically we would like to create devices which would allow people to feel embodied, in the body of a humanoid robot. To do so we are trying to develop techniques from Brain Computer Interfaces (BCI) so that we can read the peoples thoughts and then try to see how far we can go from interpreting brain waves signals, to transform them into actions to be done by the robot."
