SYSTEMS: Pilot-less aircraft are one thing, but airborne machines which can be operated from the ground simply by using the power of human thought are on a different scale entirely. Probably decades away from being adopted in any form, but the science is there to make it happen. Read the full story on the BBC News.
Researchers have harnessed the power of thought to guide a remote-control helicopter through an obstacle course.
The demonstration joins a growing number of attempts to translate the electrical patterns of thoughts into motions in the virtual and real world.
Applications range from assisting those with neurodegenerative disorders to novel modes of video game play.
The research in the Journal of Neural Engineering uses a non-invasive "cap" to capture brain electrical activity.
