Mind controlled car is like wielding the power of The Force

Scientists have made significant advances in the realm of thought-controlled computers, but a new development would give us the ability to actually drive entire automobiles with our minds.

Freie Universität Berlin professor Raul Rojas and his AI research team have developed a system called the BrainDriver that uses an electroencephalography head cap to interface with the primary functions of an automobile. Users must first undergo a bit of training, after which they are unleashed to travel the streets using only brain power. Fans of Stargate Atlantis can finally stop viewing the technology of "The Ancients" as mere TV magic, this kind of technology is becoming a reality. You can see video of the BrainDriver in action in the video below.
