Called the BrainDriver, this futuristic car — developed by German researchers — uses an Emotiv neuroheadset to enable brain interface control. In other words, “each action corresponds to a different brain activity pattern, and the BrainDriver software associates the patterns to specific commands — turn left, turn right, accelerate etc.” Video after the break.

The researchers then feed these commands to the drive-by-wire system of the vehicle, a modified Volkswagen Passat Variant 3c. Now the driver’s thoughts can control the engine, brakes, and steering.
