This Gamer Used His Thoughts To Control The Movements Of Another PlayerGeorge Dvorsky11/06/14 12:30pmFiled to: neurosciencesciencefuturismbrain-to-brain interfaceeegtmsmind-to-mind communication182EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkAn upgraded brain-to-brain interface has allowed researchers to transmit signals from one person's brain over the internet and use those signals to control the hand motions of another person. Remarkably, the system allowed the participants to collaborate on a computer game.

The newer, more comprehensive study, which now appears in PLOS One, brings their brain-to-brain interface (BBI) from the demo stage to something more like a tangible, deliverable technology. The technique is similar to one developed earlier this year by a separate team of researchers. But unlike that BBI experiment, this one tested different pairs of study participants and was conducted in real time over the Web.
