Power of Thought Alone Can Make Things Move

20 August 2000


A computer scientist in the US has come up with a way of making things happen merely by thinking them ! The invention, which could help thousands of disabled people, works by monitoring brain-waves. Volunteers were able to turn on lights, the stereo, television and answer the telephone in a virtual appartment, just by looking at the object that they wanted to activate. They could even bring a computer-simulated car to a halt on a screen just by thought alone. Neuro-engineering - article about building interfaces between the brain and machines.
