Swiss Scientists Demonstrate Thought-Controlled Robot

Swiss scientists have demonstrated how a partially paralyzed person can control a robot by thought alone.

Swiss scientists have demonstrated a robot "avatar" that can be manipulated by the thoughts of a person wearing a small, fitted cap with electrodes that measures brainwaves and transmits them through a computer.

A professor at a Swiss university on Tuesday unveiled a robot that can be controlled by the brainwaves of a paraplegic person wearing an electrode-fitted cap, news agency ATS reported.
