Flying a drone using just human brainwaves

25 February 2015 Last updated at 16:44 GMT

Scientists in Portugal have shown how drone aircraft can be controlled using just the brainwaves of a person on the ground.

The company behind the technology think it could be used to enable people who can't move their arms and legs to control aircraft and other vehicles.

But they also think that in the future, big transport planes could actually be flown from the ground, without needing a crew on board.
