Think Mind Control Is Science Fiction? Think Again
Scientists have figured out how to use our brainwaves for everything from racing drones to restoring the function of paralyzed limbs.By Evan Thomas | April 26, 2016
Researchers are getting better at harnessing brain signals. These days, you can strap on a headset and control a drone with nothing but your thoughts.
"We have a computer program that you look at. We tell you, 'Think forward. Think about pushing a chair forward.' So we learn to navigate the drone based on your brain patterns for specific things you're thinking about," said University of Florida's Juan Gilbert.
And as mind-reading gets easier, there are more and more things that can be mind-controlled.
