Everyday, science is bringing us closer to the future. And the University of Minnesota is helping us all get there that much sooner with this just published video, appropriately titled Mind Over Mechanics, that demonstraes their jaw-dropping new feat of engineering.
The video features a quadcopter that can delicately fly through hoops and obstacles. But that’s not the amazing part. What’s incredible is that the robot is controlled with no hands.
The user simply thinks of where the robot should fly, and the brain-computer interface takes care of the rest. Hopefully, robots controlled by just thought will help and even free countless disabled people in the near future.
