ASIMO controlled by human thought

In a demonstration performed in Tokyo, Honda headquarters, it was shown that a person can make the famous humanoid robot ASIMO move just by thinking about it.The person who wore a helmet to pick up his brain signals was able to move ASIMO’s right arm, just by thinking about it. Although the movement appeared to have a few seconds delay, this is a promising achievement for future advances.

The most challenging area of robotics, which is developing the AI which might one day enable robots to move like humans do, is for the most part based on reverse engineering the human brain. However, experiments like this also show us the possibilities of a real human robot interaction. For original article, please visit the link below.
