Paralyzed Patient Moves Robot With Their Mind
Scientists in Switzerland have demonstrated a robot that can be controlled by a quadriplegic wearing an EEG cap fitted with electrodes.
Connecting human thought to a machine is a pursuit that once only existed in science fiction, but now Swiss scientists have made the impossible a reality. Researchers at Switzerland’s Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne have demonstrated that a partially paralyzed person could control a robot by thought alone, giving hope that someday immobilized people will be able to interact with even remote environments through pseudo-avatars.
