Flying drones with no remote control 2016.05.06
15561 15561

DRONES, which are aircraft without a pilot, are very popular nowadays. People take photographs and videos with their own private drones. Normally, they operate the little aircraft with a remote control. Recently, the University of Florida (佛羅里達大學) in the US held a drone competition. The special thing about it was that the drones were commanded only with human brains!

How did they do this? The players wore headsets that could detect brain waves, which means that they had to think how their drones were going to fly! It is hoped the technology will help humans to control many things in the future just by using our minds.
