To curb the current climate issues and rising pollution, researchers in China have developed a car that can be controlled with your mind. Researchers have developed what they say is the country’s first car that uses nothing but brain power to drive, a report said. Nankai University's research team has spent around two years bringing the mind-controlled vehicle to reality. A driver can control the car movements by wearing brain signal-reading equipment. The equipment has 16 sensors that capture EEG (electroencephalogram) signals from the driver’s brain. This vehicle is currently in collaboration with Chinese car manufacturer Great Wall Motor, can only drive in a straight direction, and there are no plans to put it into production.
