Mind-Controlled Wheelchair

Mind-Controlled Wheelchair

A team from the University of Zaragoza, Spain have created a new mind-controlled wheelchair. A graphical computer interface displays a set of basic movement commands that the user concentrates on. Sensors covering the riders head pick up these control thoughts via unique changes in EEG waves, and tell the chair how to move. Laser sensors also scan the surrounding area to prevent collisions.Though the technology is in a raw form now, it looks promising.
