Baxter, The Mind Reading Robot


Baxter is an awesome robot that can read your mind! It's a robotic application for using humans to help guide robots in manufacturing and other industries. 

The technology works by utilizing signals called error related potentials. If the EEG reading signals in the human's brain, detects that Baxter is about to make a mistake, it responds. Pretty clever :) See more in this Wired video, thanks!

This technology is quite relevant to our robotic future, as more and more robots are being integrated into human work. This is dangerous, as the robot cannot truly know if it's doing the right thing, or accidentally hurting someone. If a robot can read our body language, or in this instance, mental energy, we'll have a safer robotic integration.
