A thought controlled robot (aka brain controlled robot) has been revealed by researchers at the Neural Systems Lab at the University of Washington. By wearing a special hat with 32 scalp electrodes, a human can move the robot and make it pick up objects by simply thinking. One of the U of W researchers, Rajesh Rao, suggested, "One day we might be able to use semi-autonomous robots for helping disabled people."

Thought controlled devices aren't new to Trend Hunter. Earlier in the year, we found Thought Controlled Video Games and a Thought Controlled Bionic Arm.
