A Car You Can Drive With Your Thoughts

An anonymous reader writes “German researchers have demonstrated a car that can be driven with brain power alone. In the video, a driver wears an EEG head cap, which records brain activity. Software converts the neural signals into steering and acceleration commands, feeding the data into the car’s drive-by-wire system. The brain-car interface, which the researchers call the ‘BrainDriver,’ is far from being commercially viable. But it could one day allow disabled and paralyzed people to gain more mobility. It could also, the researchers say, help people control autonomous vehicles, like a future driverless cab; just by thinking, passengers would tell the cab where to go.”
