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.
In the below shown video, the volunteer dons an electrode cap as he observes a screen with lighted dots, a process employed to educate his brain to associate glimmering objects with actions. With a focused attention, he shall be ably prompting actions- translating brain signals into robotic movements.
