Emotiv Allows You To Control The Rovio Robot Using Your Mind

You might remember Rovio, the electronic robot guard dog (that doesn’t look like a dog), but this time, things are a lot cooler. This is because the Emotiv Systems’ headset is used to control the robot via Skype. Thanks to the Emotiv headset, your facial gestures and brainwaves are recognized, and used to control the robot. The signal will be picked up by a PC that is loaded with Roboclient, that interprets the commands, after which the commands are sent to another computer, via Skype, and finally transferred to the Rovio using the Robodance 5 app, giving you an obedient robot that can be controlled by your mind. Fancy, huh? Check out the video after the jump.
