Thought-controlled flying robot

http://www.livescience.com/27849-mind-controlled-devices-brain-awareness-nsf.html University of Minnesota researchers led by Professor Bin He have been able to control a small helicopter using only their minds, pushing the potential of technology that could help paralyzed or motion-impaired people interact with the world around them. An EEG cap with 64 electrodes was put on head of the person controlling the helicopter. […]

Skin mounted electrode arrays measure neural signals

http://coleman.ucsd.edu/lab-research/ Professor Todd Coleman of UCSD is developing foldable, stretchable electrode arrays that can non-invasively measure neural signals. They can also provide more in-depth analysis by including thermal sensors to monitor skin temperature and light detectors to analyze blood oxygen levels.  The device is powered by micro solar panels and uses antennae to wirelessly transmit or […]
