In Brief

ThynkBot responds to straightforward directional commands as facilitated by a Neurosky MindWave Mobile EEG headset

ThynkBot is a mini robot that will follow the commands of your brain waves. It uses your phone as a receiver, and a light headband EEG reader, to connect to the toy robot via Bluetooth. ThynkWare, the company behind the project, built the device to be usable by anybody, going so far as to feature a 5-year-old in their Kickstarter fundraising video.

The commands that the robot follows are straight forward: “forward,” “backward,” “turn right,” “turn left.” The robot will follow the directions you send using your brain waves.
