Scientists have created a way to control a robot with signals
from a human brain.

By generating the proper brainwaves—picked up by a cap
with electrodes that sense the signals and reflect a person's
instructions—scientists can instruct a humanoid robot to
moves to specific locations and pick us certain objects.

The commands are limited to moving forward, picking up one
of two objects and bringing it to one of two locations.
The researchers have achieved 94 percent accuracy between
the thought commands and the robot's movements.

In the future, the researchers hope to make the robot more
adaptive to the environment by having them carry out more
complex commands.


This is a great development, expecially with a 94% success
rate at an early stage like this.

This technology, when it amtures, will definately have many
markets, from military, to medical to emergency response
even to industrial uses.
This, when it comes to fruition will be a major boon in
telepresence technology.
