Mind-controlled quadcopter demonstrates new possibilities for people who are paralyzed
With support from NSF, biomedical engineer Bin He and his team at the University of Minnesota have created a brain-computer interface with the goal of helping people with disabilities, such as paralysis, regain the ability to do everyday tasks. Currently, the researchers are testing out their system using a flying object known as a quadcopter, which is controlled with someone's thoughts!
