Japan Unveils Mind Control Robot (Video)
2009 06 28
In Japan scientists at the Honda Research Institute have unveiled the world's first brain to machine interface. Dubbed BMI short for Brain Machine Interface this new technology system will enable people to control robots using their mind.
Pushing buttons and fiddling with levers to control a robot could be a thing of the past. Honda's new system works using a brain activity measuring device that sends signals to their famous ASIMO humanoid robot.
As a user imagines moving a body part, sensors placed on the head measure and analyze the slight waves and blood flow changes in the brain. This allows the robot to make corresponding movements such as raising its arm or leg.
Honda hopes to incorporate the technology into a variety of human-friendly products in the future.
[Tatsuya Okube, Honda Research]: "As you know, we are, we are fundamental researchers so now we are, we are challenging to release some new technology. So unfortunately now we cannot expect when we can release BMI (Brain Machine Interface) as a product."
Japan is now home to almost half of the world's 800,000 industrial robots. This massive robot population is expected to turn into a 10 billion U.S. dollar industry in the future.
