In the past few years, we have covered plenty of awesome brain-controlled gadgets and toys here. As this video shows, it is possible to also control industrial robots via a brain computer interface. For this specific project, a 7DOF Kinova Jaco2 robot arm was paired with an Emotiv Epoc+. As the researchers explain:

The user selects an element from a GUI by focusing attention on it and counting how many times it flashes. The motion of the manipulator is controlled relying on a closed loop inverse kinematic algorithm that simultaneously manages multiple set based and equality-based tasks. The objects and the user’s mouth are recognized and localized using an RGB-D sensor (Kinect).

Thanks to this approach, it is possible to control robots with your thoughts.
