Brain-controlled Helicopters Are Used As An Educational Tool




Puzzlebox, the San Francisco-based startup, has been producing brain-controlled helicopters for classrooms and television for the past two years. Recently it has designed a crazy new toy that combines a brain-controlled helicopter with open hardware, software, and teaching material. Puzzlebox Orbit is controlled by brainwaves instead of a remote control and can be used as an educational tool to teach kids how to focus. The helicopter is connected to a NeuroSky MindWave Mobile EEG headset that measures brain activity so when the user concentrates, the helicopter flies in a pre-determined path. The smart device features a unique spherical design that protects helicopter blades from unintended impact with objects such as walls and ceilings. The Puzzlebox Orbit is an open source and open hardware project, and the startup will release guides and software for taking the toy apart to rebuild or customize it. They will also publish lessons on how mind-controlled devices actually work and how infrared signals run the aircraft.
