8 Examples of Mind Controlled Technology in Action

Buck Rogers, Staff Writer
Waking Times

The age of the brain-computer interface is here, and technology has found a way to put brainwaves to practical use in the material world.

Electroencephalography, or EEG, measures low-voltage electrical signals from the brain using sensors attached to the scalp and face. When neurons inside the brain fire off, for one reason or another, electrical signals are emitted, captured, amplified then sent to a computer for interpretation. Once the signals are captured, scientists and engineers can convert this information into software commands to control real, 3-dimensional objects.

This technology works by first ‘training’ the computer to recognize brainwave patterns, then maps those inputs to the control designs of the engineer. As is the case with human ingenuity, the results are mind-blowing. Here are 8 videos demonstrating the potential for human-brain interface technology, outside of the defense industry.

Mind Controlled Robotic Limbs

The ability to physically move things is something that most of us take for granted. Using surgically implanted electrodes, and using a mind-controlled robotic arm, this paralyzed woman is able to feed herself for the first time in a decade…

The Mind Controlled Word Processor

G.Tech’s intendiX EEG based system allows users to type out messages in a basic word processor on a computer…

Samsung’s Tablet Computer Controlled by Brainwaves

At the Samsung research & development facility in Dallas, TX they are developing a tablet computer that performs simple operations based on the intentions of the user…

Mind Controlled Helicopters

Researchers and students at the University of Minnesota have developed a system for controlling robots, like this helicopter, with brain patterns of the user who wears an EEG cap

Open source, and hackable, The ‘Puzzle Box Orbit’ revealed at the show… Open source and hackable the puzzlebox is a consumer product that can be used to learn the basics of EEG control mapping…

Mind Controlled Performance Art

Artist Lisa Park has developed an performance art piece that controls synthesized sound to create beautiful water dances with her emotions…

Mind Controlled Skateboard

In a rather awesome example, this mind-controlled skateboard can reach a top speed of 32 miles per hour…

Mind Controlled Robotics

A student of robotics at Taiwan National university demonstrates mind-control of various robitics including a Lego robot…

This potential applications for this technology are enormous and this is proof that thoughts are indeed things.

    Hey Buck,
    you’re leaving out the DoD most advanced MK of them all that is light years ahead of anything commercial. Targeted individuals suffer greatly from the use of nano bots, alogrithmic super computers, HAARP and Chemtrails to literally use voice to skull, mind manipulation.

  • The mind and spirit is vast an its depths are not accessible to many. People try to get there through physical means through the aid of technology. I guess there are two ways to get there, but one doesn’t lead to a good place.

    This is wonderful! I find it sad that there are so many primitive minds fearing the very technology that could one day save their lives, give them the ability to walk again or see or be independent if something unforeseen happens to them.

    I think, like it or not, we’re getting transhumanism without an ethical review. You have to stop and wonder at least a bit about all the breathless excitement in these videos. It’s like “Look ma, no hands” (followed by the huge, inevitable crash).
