This is really a very shocking information, I can't even think how anyone can control the robot's mind. Really amazing.

'Inner voices': US scientists spy on human minds with brain decoder

"Keeping your thoughts strictly to yourself may soon prove infeasible, with scientists working on a break-through, mind-reading device."

There’s a story within the article about a monkey in North Carolina that communicates with and operates robotic legs in Japan via a custom program that sends his brain’s electrical impulses over the Internet. No that’s not the future stuff but something that’s presently being tested. It’s truly fascinating and a must read for anyone with scientific curiosity.
I knew someone in school (about 10 years ago) who had epilepsy. While he was in the hospital for surgery to control the seizures, he underwent experiments where he would move a mouse on a computer using his mind, via electrodes implanted in his brain. It was fun riding the school bus with him while he talked about the experience. He said it felt like he was doing telekinesis.

DARPA-funded mind-controlled robotic arm now works a lot better

Quote:
At Expand NY in November, DARPA Director Arati Prabhakar talked about the erm, friendlier projects the agency is funding, including a mind-controlled robotic arm tested by Pittsburgh native Jan Scheuermann. Her test run has recently ended, but the University of Pittsburgh researchers in charge of project have published a paper detailing how much the limb has improved over the past two years. Before they took off Jan's implants, she could already move not just arm itself, but also its wrist and fingers -- she reportedly even beat her brother at a rock-paper-and-scissors game. "Overall, our results indicate that highly coordinated, natural movement can be restored to people whose arms and hands are paralyzed," said Pitt School of Medicine professor Andrew Schwartz, Ph.D.

Amazing advancement almost daily.

BrainGate brings wireless computer mind control to paralysed people

Quote:
A wireless brain-computer interface capable of transmitting thought commands
to digital devices is close to commercialisation following more than a decade of
development.

The BrainGate Neural Interface System, engineered by researchers at Brown
University in collaboration with Utah-based company Blackrock Microsystems,
works through a small brain implant "about the size of a baby aspirin" that
attaches to a person's skull and streams thought commands through radio
signals.

Cool, Yet Creepy, Mind-Control and Mind-Controlled Technology

Quote:
The technology already exists to implant and erase memories in the brain, and
to use one person’s mind to control another person’s actions. On the flip side
of technological invasions into our minds, interesting gadgets are increasingly
being invented that can be controlled with the mind, hands-free.

Robotics: Mind-Controlled Robot Hands Fitted to Austrian Patients

Quote:
Robotic hands have been successfully attached to three amputees in Austria, using a new technique that allows the users to control their electronic limbs with their minds.

Default Not science fiction but science fact

We're at the dawn of a brave new world.

Paralysed woman flies F-35 fighter jet using only her mind

Quote:
A quadriplegic woman has used brain implants to fly an F-35 fighter jet simulator using only her thoughts as part of a US government project.

Jan Scheuermann, 55, achieved the feat as part of an initiative by the Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) that explores the intersection of biology and robotics.

"Instead of thinking about controlling a joystick, which is what our ace pilots do when they're driving this thing, Jan's thinking about controlling the airplane directly," said DARPA director Arati Prabhakar.

We can already send thoughts from one brain to another

Quote:
Imagine an undercover operative on a mission. At some point, she knows she'll
need to call for backup — but pulling out a phone would be too risky, and
there's no way to give a visible signal to her team.

Yet at the key moment, she can think "YES" — which could be interpreted as
"yes, now is the time, go go go go go!" — and send that signal directly to the
brain of a team member, who would see it as a flash and know that now is the
moment to act.

I'm reading this book now and highly recommend it.
Yes, I read it a few months ago - good stuff, and still not outdated. Because of his credentials and public recognition he was able to get insights from the most cutting-edge researchers and translate it for us. It's not his field but he's been long interested as an amateur, and makes an excellent editor.


I'm a TI, and believe it's possible that DARPA is experimenting with me and other TIs. They pick out socially vulnerable targets without good social links and do the same sort of research they used to do on unsuspecting citizens who were doped with LSD, in order to investigate the possibility of it being used as a weapon.

The dilemma for us TIs is that there are few ways to prove what's happening, as the symptoms are identical with those of paranoid schizophrenia. I can prove that I'm being harassed on a local level through some videos I made at one time, but the bigger picture of WHY some group would spend so much time and money on 24/7 surveillance and doing weird harassing things without actually physically harming me, is sheer speculation based on a very few clues. But I do think I have a little understanding now of where some of the enormous black ops budget goes ...... yeah I think they can do a lot more in neurological weaponry than they let on, stuff that seems like magic or psi.

I don't think the elected govt is in ultimate control of the country right now, though of course they're good enough for day-to-day stuff.
