Brainwaves Correct Robot Mistakes in Real Time—with a Little Help from Machine Learning

Brainwaves Correct Robot Mistakes in Real Time—with a Little Help from Machine Learning

The idea of controlling robotic operations with nothing more than brainwaves is the ultimate expression of the man-machine interface. The introduction of machine learning to detect actionable brainwave signatures—and translate them into commands a robot or other actuator can comprehend—opens up new and potentially unlimited vistas into possibilities for revolutionizing...

An Arduino-based Brain-Computer Interface

Whenever you think a thought—and even when you don’t—the more than one hundred billion neurons making up your brain fire through and across an interconnected web of terminals in an elegant electronic interplay. And at just that moment when the sum of input signals into one neuron crosses a certain...

Teslapathic: Mind Control for your Car

The notion of brain waves being able to exert sufficient energy to influence objects would involve nothing short of a miracle—especially considering that the radiance of the wimpy signals emitted by neural activity don’t extend beyond a few millimeters from the skull. Spoon benders need not apply. But moving a...
