Vyralize: Using Brain waves (EEG), scientists have been able to successfully fly a robot quadcopter.
holy shit this is insane
one step closer to having robotic limbs that can be controlled with thoughts like you would a normal hand.
The age of Newtypes begins
The beginning of Nano-tech?
how would u even think that? there are no nano anything involved with this period.
Well. They was able to map 64 scalp electrodes to capture signals from the motor cortex system (specific brain waves)and then translate them into physical actions/electronic controls. What if they can capture that information without the scalp electrodes? What if they can use (internal)bio transmitters like they use in current cutting edge healthcare to remotely pass blood pressure, heart patterns, glucose measurement data to monitoring systems; except have them relay the signals back to a remote device for immediate support? ... .. . What if the bio transmitters continuing to become more sophisticated/smaller, act as a two way component that can relay responses back to the user(brain stimuli) from an external device? Just saying... The beginning of Nano-tech :)
i get what ur saying but they have to make the bots at all that can do any tasks that complex before they make them for specific purposes. also this is touting a way to do this without invasive implants which i would say that would be. the next step after this is to make a hat/ sensors that are much much smaller and easy to work into everyday clothing or some kind of helmet so it could be used in conjunction with the persons body also doing work. like someone piloting a tank or a mech or something where the brain wave control supplements everything else and lets you do small tasks rather than the main job of piloting.
Yep. I agree. The applications appear to be very inspiring. Looking forward to the next 20 years.
its a extremely advanced emotiv controller which has been on the market for like 2 years http://www.emotiv.com/
So many things controlled with EEG brainwaves these days...
Title: "Pilot flies helicopter with brain thoughts" As opposed to what? Finger thoughts? Ear thoughts? Foot thoughts? The word "brain" seems painfully redundant, no? Perhaps I am just being overly critical with my finger typing and my mouth words. Time to go mouth eat some hand & fork food!
that made me laugh out of my face mouth. ^_^
Seen this before, years ago a man was in a crash. He was rebuilt They made him stronger, faster, better it cost about six million dollars. :)
