When a youth creates a winning mind control project, it’s time to realize humanity has entered a new era. This week, a 14-year old GEMS Millennium School student walked away with honours for a mind control project. Rishabh Java designed and 3D printed a bionic arm that was selected as the ‘Best Innovative Project’ of the year.
“I am thrilled to receive the award. In future I plan to add other functionalities such as equip it with sensors that give a real-time response to the residual arm, have wrist and elbow movement and make it more user-friendly,” said Java.
The teen’s winning creation is a low-cost, mind-controlled, functional 3D-printed bionic forearm that users can control with their minds.
Java built the bionic arm using Electroencephalography (EEG) – an electrophysiological monitoring method to record electrical activity of the brain to perform simple tasks, such as shake hands and pick up objects among others. It will work as an ideal replacement for patients with disabled hands.
The disabled can get their sense of touch back by replacing their functionless forearm with the bionic arm, that can interface with the nervous system.
The realm of mind-control possibilities is limitless.
Earlier this year, a young man from Indonesia claimed to have built a bionic arm out of scrap metal, but it was not connected to the brain.
