Honda create mind-controlled robot, oh the possibilites!

The video below shows a man controlling Honda’s Asimo robot using just his thoughts in what is called the world’s first Brain Machine Interface (BMI) technology.

The way it works is that sensors placed on someone’s head can measure “slight electrical current and blood flow changes”

Towards the end of the video, they claim that the robot is 90% accurate.

This isn’t the first we’ve heard of thought control technology with Nintendo claiming they are close to developing thought controlled games.

So, what does this mean? I know it might be obvious but my mind is a bit messed up at the moment after seeing a programme on Bravo about guys with life-like sex dolls. I’ve said enough.

I mean, honestly someone would have ‘thought’ of it sooner or later (I’m so funny). But just to let you know, do you know how many men get admitted to hospital because of hoover related accidents? Last year there were 32 in the UK alone. Think about it.

Other possiblities for the robot are cleaning and other menial tasks that would make lif easier.
