Flying robot controlled by human mind


Scientists of Minnesota University, led by professor Bin He, show how they can control a flying robot using human mind.

The flying robot is a quadcopter drone and it is controlled by monitoring the electrical activity of human mind. The signal coming from 64 electrodes of a ECC cap is detected and translated in a pattern to drive the robot.
