This system is able to process thoughts then translate them into a command to move objects, making it very useful for people who cannot speak or move.
The disadvantage is, it causes mental fatigue.
However, a Mexican researcher has designed an intelligent interface that reduces the mental fatigue, and it is capable of learning up to 90 percent of
the user's instructions.
This project is called "Automating a brain-machine interface system". Christian Isaac Peñaloza Sanchez, a PhD candidate for Cognitive Neuroscience,
Applied to Robotics at the University of Osaka, Japan, is in charge of the project.

"I have worked for three years in this project, based on brain-machine interfaces, whose function is to measure the activity of neurons in order to
obtain a signal generated by a thought, which is processed and converted into an indication for moving, for example, a robotic prosthesis, a computer
pointer or house appliances," says the scientist, who is part of the Mexican Talent Network, Chapter Japan.
He explains how the system consists of electrodes placed on the scalp, which then measures brain activity in form of EEG signals.
These are then used to detect thought patterns generated by the user (awaken, drowsy or asleep, etc.) and levels of concentration.
It also includes a graphical interface that displays the available devices or objects, which interprets EEG signals to assign user commands and
In addition, there are wireless sensors distributed in the room in charge of sending environmental information (such as temperature or lighting);
mobile hardware actuators which receive signals to turn on and off appliances and an artificial intelligence algorithm.
What will they think of next?! This is wonderful!!! Hat's off to this guy!!
