Mind control on the UAV brain

Along with its biologically inspired unmanned systems research, engineers at the University of Maryland are delving into novel operator control concepts for unmanned air vehicles. On display at a 10 September open house of the new Maryland Robotics Center was a brain wave control technology developed by a contractor and former student, Paul Samuel, president of Daedalus Flight Systems.

Using a headset controller made popular last year in Mindflex's mind control game, Samuel showed how a quadrotor helicopter could be controlled in altitude and direction simply by either concentrating intensely or relaxing the mind in a sleep-like state.
