TOKYO - Toyota Motor Corp. says it has developed a way of steering a wheelchair by just detecting brain waves, without the person having to move a muscle or shout a command.

Toyota's system, developed in a collaboration with researchers in Japan, is among the fastest in the world in analyzing brain waves, it said in a release Monday.

Past systems required several seconds to read brain waves, but the new technology requires only 125 milliseconds - or 125 thousandths of a second.




I wonder why it is a Japanese company researching subjects that help people?
Do American car companies research something other than just ways to increase profit? Apparently, except for Ford, they didn't even do a good job of doing that.
