Brain-machine interfaces are interesting control systems that promise to make things happen just by thinking about them. Though not a new technology, researchers are working to make BMI’s more functional and compact.

One exciting development in the BMI world, is a project by Honda that uses human thought to control an Asimo robot. Users wearing a sensor-filled helmet think about moving their arms or legs, and the Asimo will respond in kind. The system analyzes electric potential changes on the skull surface, and data about how blood is moving inside the brain, translating this information into instructions for the robot.
