and no thinking in russian involved? hurrah!!
In a development with potentially huge consequences in the field of care for the disabled (also the related fields of disembodied brains in bubbling jars, cyborgs, human-machine interfaces etc) a group of students have shown that they can accurately control a small drone helicopter using only a specialised …
Nice idea, but having had recent experience of an EEG 'hat' (I'm not crazy, I've been tested!), there's a load of calibration work to fit it, not to mention quantities of electro-conductive gel to be applied to your head through each sensor, and try not to clench your jaw or move your eyes too much 'cos the electrical signals from the muscles will generate some serious interference - hence the fact that the guy in the video has a bit of a dopey look due to trying to keep his head and neck relaxed whilst imagining clenching his hands.
If you can get round a lot of the messy application, recalibration and dopey relaxation issues by inserting a sensor once with a simple* procedure then that actually has some appeal for real-world applications.
*I am (clearly) not a nerosurgeon, so for a given value of 'simple'.
Beer, 'cos it helps with the relaxation!
Obviously there is a large shield between the brain and the sensors - we need to get rid of that first. Once the brain is exposed we can float some dry ice around there with some green and purple lighting should look good.
Presumably they couldn't get research funding unless they used WiFi in the title.
