Honda have announced that it has developed a robot that can be steered by human thought via a helmet that is capable of measuring brain activity. Honda'a celebrity robot ASIMO has been fitted with the device allowing a person to control several of its functions through thought alone.
Japan's Honda said Tuesday it had developed a robot steered by human thought, thanks to a helmet-like device that measures a person's brain activity and sends signals to the machine. The latest version of ASIMO -- the celebrity robot of Honda Motor Co. that can already dance, run and guide guests through an office floor -- has now been fitted with a so-called "brain machine interface" (BMI), the company said."

Wow, you would have to have very ordered thoughts if chaos were to be avoided! No kidding. This is not a toy for those with murderous or suicidal thoughts.

No kidding. This is not a toy for those with murderous or suicidal thoughts. I agree, which is why it's still in the research stage. Still the concept has many useful applications in the real world. From Police work, to hazardous waste clean up. and Lunar Mining operations. The list goes on and on. Robotics is going to be a real money maker in the near future! IMO as always.

Everything has its good and bad applications.
