AutoNOMOS scientists from the Freie Universitӓt Berlin have invented a car that can be driven by thoughts alone. A computer that the driver can access by using a specialized headset with electroencephalogram (EEG) sensors mainly controls the vehicle. In the test the driver only has to think “accelerate,” “turn left”, “turn right” or “stop” and the computer responds to the thought commands. The only downside to this invention according to Raύl Rojas, head of the project, is while it’s easy to control a car, you can’t control the movements of pedestrians and how they think.
