.Student controls robot with his mind from 2,000km away
Title Mangler - improved
A student in Israel has successfully controlled the movement of a robot 2,000km away in France -- just by thinking about it. The brainwaves of university student Tirosh Shapira were recorded by computer scientists at Bar-Ilan University, processed by an algorithm and the corresponding commands then sent via the internet to a robot based at the Béziers Technology Institute. Aside from a very brief time delay, Shapira was able to make the robot turn 30 degrees left or right immediately by imagining his hands moving left or right, and make it walk forward when he imagined moving his legs. Eventually, Shapira could command the robot to follow a person (see the embedded video) around a room and even locate a pot of tea. By: Liat Clark, Edited by: Nate Lanxon Continue reading... -
