Mind-Control with an Electrode Cap

Mind-Control with an Electrode Cap
A new non-invasive, brain-computer interface can control a robotic arm without the need for surgery.

The BCI system was developed by a team from Carnegie Mellon University with an eye toward making the technology more accessible to people with mobility issues. Instead of the brain implants typically required, the electrode laden cap can sense the brain’s activity through the scalp. In tests, a robotic arm controlled by the system was able to move smoothly to follow a cursor—a fluidity not seen in previous non-invasive BCI attempts.
