Mind-controlled aircraft created in China

Out of all the X-Men, I’ve always liked Jean Grey for her ability to move things with only her mind (never mind the Phoenix Saga). It’s actually a fantastic allegory for the inexhaustible power of the brain.

Researchers at Zhejiang University in China have developed software that allow your brain activity to command a small helicopter-like aircraft. The graduate students haven’t worked out all the kinks, but say when the software is perfected, it could be a life-changing invention for people with disabilities.
