It's Time Humans Commanded Robots With Their Mind. Almost.

Japan researchers are working a brain-machine interface that controls the actions of a humanoid robot, with the sole purpose of letting the people "feel embodied in the body of a humanoid robot," as per a researcher involved in this project. Roboticists at the CRNS-AIST Joint Robotics Laboratory- a joint venture between the French National Center for Scientific Research and the Japanese Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology- are toiling real hard to convert the brain waves into respective actions that could be perceived by a robot.

With a focused attention, he shall be ably prompting actions- translating brain signals into robotic movements.
