The science and technology behind controlling a quadcopter with just your brainwaves.

We’ve discussed thought control using EEGs before, but this video does a pretty good job of breaking things down to the core principles.

Students at the University of Minnesota Biomedical Engineering Department were able to steer this flying robot, controlling it in a number of different directions, using just a brain-computer interface.

Researchers hope that someday this technology will enable those crippled by neurodegenerative diseases to regain control of their limbs.
