Chinese breakthrough lets human brains beam radio waves
Researchers say new technology could be used for mind-controlled military radar and other devices.
Chinese researchers say they have made it possible for humans to beam radio waves with their brains in a breakthrough that could have uses ranging from health monitoring to mind-controlled military radar.
In an air force laboratory experiment, researchers showed that brainwaves could control and interact with electromagnetic waves remotely.
“Our design provides users with a universal way to manipulate electromagnetic waves using brainwaves,” said Professor Wang Jiafu, leading project scientist with Air Force Engineering University in northwestern Shaanxi province, in a paper published in peer-reviewed journal eLight on June 11.
