Every day, it seems, there is some dazzling new advancement in science and technology. Consider the video above, which demonstrates how researchers are able to use brain waves to guide and control a helicopter. It’s amazing stuff, and you can read about some of the science behind the thought control device here.
You can imagine the enormous value of this kind of technology as it relates to helping disabled people to control their environment, achieve greater self-sufficiency, and use their brainpower to make up for their disability-related losses. For those who are wheelchair-bound but unable to speak due to injury or debilitating disease, for example, imagine the joy of being able to use your brain to communicate with the outside world once more. That day can’t get here fast enough.
