Brain-powered Robo

This short video is an extraordinary one from Mainchi News, shows how Taku Ichikawa, a student of University of Electro-Communication, control a bipedal combat robot by sending commands through a set of electrodes applied to his forehead that measure his neural activity, making it possible to control the 50-centimeter tall and 2 kilograms robot just by thinking. The robot will compete in the Robo-One robot fighting tournament which will open on Saturday, September 26 at Toyama Techno Hall, Toyama Prefecture.
