Later this year, soccer's World Cup will begin, and an advanced robotic exoskeleton will be part of the opening kick-off.
Either this one of these guys is Professor X or humanity just opened the door to being used like Wi-Fi puppets.
Steering a quadcopter with your mind is totally a thing now.
Mind-controlled prosthetics are making leaps and bounds in terms of dexterity. Research at the University of Pittsburgh has yielded what's considered the most advanced prosthetic arm control system yet. We've come a long way from Captain Hook with brain implants and prosthesis.
Cockroaches are incredibly creepy at the best of times, but what if you could control their movements? A team from the IBionicS laboratory at North Carolina State University have done just that, mounting control circuitry on some giant cockroaches and making them do their bidding.
Thanks to an EEG headset and a compressed air cannon, destroying things with your brain just got a whole lot easier.
Do you like to think about how cool it would be to fly? A group of researchers at Zhejiang University in China has developed a way to harness those thoughts, turning them into control signals for a real flying Quadcopter.
Gesture-controlled hacks are pretty cool, but that technology seems positively stone aged compared to something that actually reads your mind.
As part of IBM's "5 in 5" forecasts of predictions, the company says that "minding reading" (more like mind control) will no longer be a science fiction dream and that within five years, we'll all be controlling our computers and smartphones by just wiggling our brains.
You know, there are times when even we get a little tempted to don the ol' tinfoil hat. Weirdly enough, those times usually have something to do with DARPA, as the agency is now researching technology that will affect soldiers' brains to boost their abilities.
