Scientists control robot with brain signals

Scientists can now instruct a humanoid robot to move to specific locations and pick up certain objects.

The commands are limited to moving forward, picking up one of two objects and bringing it to one of two locations. Researchers have achieved 94 percent accuracy between the thought commands and the robot’s movements. 

It suggests that one day we might be able to use semi-autonomous robots for such jobs as helping disabled people or performing routine tasks in a person’s home, according to the lead researcher.
