Students design, build drone controlled by mind
Engineering students at the University of Florida have designed and built a drone that they can control with their mind.
According to a Fox 35 News Orlando report, it took almost three years of research and work by a hand full of engineering students to build. After a brain-computer interface is placed on the user’s head, the user looks at a computer screen and stares at a computerized 3-D orange cube and tires to push it with their mine. After some training, the user’s brain sends electrical signals that control the drone.
As a next step they want to try and expand the design so that two people at the same time can control the drone with their thoughts.
