Teslapathic! Hackers build a brain-controlled Tesla

Teslapathic! Hackers build a brain-controlled Tesla

Using an electroencephalography (EEG) headset and gyroscopic tracking, researchers have created a mind-controlled Tesla Model S.

Self-driving cars seem to be all the rage these days in technology circles, but, as part of Cal Hacks 3.0, researchers have instead figured out how to drive a car using brain waves. This hack takes the form of an EEG headset that translates brain signals into “stop” and “go” commands, with a head-mounted gyroscopic sensor used to tell the steering wheel how to turn.

A radio link using an Arduino transmits these signals to the car’s new physical controls. This takes the form of linear actuators for the brake and accelerator pedal, and a windshield wiper motor for the steering wheel.

As seen in the video below, it works, but looks slightly terrifying! You can find out more about this particular project here.
