Swiss scientists have just demonstrated robots… controlled with their minds!
We're not sure, but we really hope they don't work for a company named Skynet!
In all actuality, this is a step forward into more of an Avatar future than a Terminator one — it's being designed for those who are paralyzed!
A team at Switzerland's Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne used only a simple head cap to record the brain signals of their subject who was at a hospital SIXTY TWO MILES AWAY!
All he had to do was imagine lifting his paralyzed fingers and boom — the thoughts were instantly translated to a foot tall robot hanging out at the lab.
Apparently it's only hard to control if there's a substantial amount of pain from whatever injuries the subject has!
INcredible! We can't believe it!
Welcome to the future!
