The Virtual Embodiment and Robotic Re-embodiment project created a robot controlled by human thought, using magnetic resonance imaging.
Researchers use functional magnetic resonance imaging to scan the brain of a student as he imagined each individual limb. Scientists mapped out his brain wave patterns, and translated them into commands to make the robot move. The student was then able to control the robot’s movement entirely by thinking about moving.
