‘Thinking Cap’ Controls Computer in New Experiment

“WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Four people were able to control a computer using their thoughts and an electrode-studded “thinking cap,” U.S. researchers reported on Monday.

They said their set-up could someday be adapted to help disabled people operate a motorized wheelchair or artificial limb.

While experiments have allowed a monkey to control a computer with its thoughts, electrodes were implanted into the animal’s brain. This experiment, reported in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (newsweb sites), required no surgery and no implants.”

Pretty cool stuff.
