Sure, almost anyone can have a robot these days. But can you control yours with your mind? And make it fly?
A study suggests that mere humans may be able to engage in a little telekinesis after all—and fly robots by sheer will. And Outliers thought drones were something to get freaked out about.
Researchers at the University of Minnesota's College of Science and Engineering have developed a noninvasive system that's as effective at reading the brain's signals as an implanted device.
In the study, published in the Journal of Neural Engineering, subjects wore a 64-electrode cap that worked as an EEG machine to record electrical activity in the brain's motor cortex.
