Mind-controlled robot avatars

4 posts in this topic

from the article:

Researchers at the CNRS-AIST Joint Robotics Laboratory (a collaboration between France's Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique and Japan's National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology) are developing software that allows a person to drive a robot with their thoughts alone. The technology could one day give a paralyzed patient greater autonomy through a robotic agent or avatar.

Would be good for the paralyzed but I'm wondering how else this could be used.

Well as the technology gets more and more sophisticated they could be used to substitue for humans in very dangerous environments like instead of having human fire fighters actually battling a fire they could direct robotic avatars and no fire fighter need ever be killed in the line of duty again. Same with soldiers, nuclear spill clean-up, SWAT, space walks, the uses are really endless as long as technology keeps advancing.
