It’s Now Possible To Telepathically Communicate with a Drone Swarm
The U.S. military’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has developed an microchip-to-brain interface that allows operators to control several drones simultaneously. “As of today, signals from the brain can be used to command and control….not just one aircraft but three simultaneous types of aircraft,” said a DARPA director. The interaction has also been improved by the return of information from the craft to the human brain so the user can sense and perceive the environment of the craft. These “brain-computer interfaces” (BCIs), offer possibilities in many areas, including control of prosthetic limbs, and non-invasive interfaces are being developed that do not require surgical implants.
