Man Vs. Droid: An Experiment In IoT Mind Control – Sphero BB-8 Controlled With EEG Headset

Avatar Julie Podbielski Stewart | 09/03/2016

The Internet of Things (IoT) has brought us some interesting mashups of technology over the past few years. Coming leaps and bounds from old school remote controlled gadgets, Joshua Carr from IBM Bluemix has taken a Sphero Star Wars BB-8 droid, an EEG headset, a raspberry pi and some clever coding to create a gadget which can be controlled using “the force”.

In this first of our Disruptive Originals we visit IBM in London’s Southbank, speak to Joshua and try the technology for ourselves untrained – with unsurprising results.
