Mind-Controlled (Simulator) Planes

An der Uni München haben sie Piloten per EEG an einen Flugsimulator angeschlossen und haben sie Flugzeuge per Mind-Control steuern lassen. Inklusive Landung.

Seven subjects took part in the flight simulator tests. They had varying levels of flight experience, including one person without any practical cockpit experience whatsoever. The accuracy with which the test subjects stayed on course by merely thinking commands would have sufficed, in part, to fulfill the requirements of a flying license test. "One of the subjects was able to follow eight out of ten target headings with a deviation of only 10 degrees," reports Fricke. Several of the subjects also managed the landing approach under poor visibility. One test pilot even landed within only few meters of the centerline.
