Can you imagine controlling something with your thoughts, well Honda is working on just that idea.
Japan's number 2 automaker is testing some pretty nifty technology that can control robots by the power of thought alone. The technology reads patterns of electric currents on a person's scalp as well as changes in cerebral blood flow when a person thinks about four simple movements. Moving the right hand, the left hand, running and eating. The information is then relayed wirelessly to the robot.
