A helicopter expertly weaved through golden rings scattered across a virtual Northrop Mall, the pilot using only the power of the human brain.
Researchers at the University of Minnesota’s biomedical engineering department unveiled a method last month that allows people to control virtual 3-D objects entirely with brainwaves after more than 10 years of work.
A “thinking cap,” an apparatus resembling a shower cap that’s embedded with 64 electrodes interprets brainwaves, said Bin He, the lead researcher on the project. A brain-computer interface (BCI) then translates the signals into instructions for the simulation.
“It’s very successful and we’re very excited,” He said.

By altering the genetic makeup of normally “unexcitable” cells, Duke University bioengineers have turned them into cells capable of generating and passing electrical current.
This proof-of-concept advance could have broad implications in treating diseases of the nervous system or the heart, since these tissues rely on cells with the ability to communicate with adjacent cells in order to function properly. This communication is achieved through the passage of electrical impulses, known as action potentials, from cell to cell.
