Watch this robot being controlled by mind power alone

Scientists in America have developed a robo-copter which is controlled by thought alone.

The "pilot" wears a cap which sends electric currents from their 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.

This got us thinking about other things that you could control just by using the power of your mind.

Would you like to be able to complete your homework from the comfort of your own bed, feed your pets without moving a muscle, or even play tricks on your teacher?

If you could use your mind to control things - what would you control and do?
