A collaboration between Rice University, the University of Houston and TIRR Memorial Hermann Hospital has led to MAHI-EXO II, a sophisticated exoskeleton that could help stroke victims regain movement in the arms by reading the patients' intended actions and nudging them along when needed. The robot wraps the arm from the fingertips to the elbow and uses a non-invasive EEG interface to anticipate gestures and help patients build up strength and accuracy over time.
This whole field of mind controlled robotics is growing like crazy. I predict that we will see all sorts of mind controlled vehicles very soon, and of course including roboticly controlled winged machines. It deals with the "what do you do if your arms get tired" or you need to scratch your nose problems.
