The helicopter powered by the mind

Imagine being able to control something with your mind - just like a Jedi Master from Star Wars.

Well, that's exactly what's happening in America where a team of professors have developed a helicopter which is controlled by thought alone.

The controller wears a cap which sends electric currents from the brain to a computer, which then beams the commands to the helicopter.

It's hoped the technology can be developed to help people with mobility problems.
