In summary, the conversation discusses the use of neurorobotics and the search for an off-the-shelf system that can scan the brain for specific thoughts. The potential use of the commercially available system, EPOC, is mentioned but deemed too expensive and complex. The suggestion of using a digital, non-medical EEG is brought up, with the caveat that it can only pick up on general brain states and is not capable of reading minds.

Hey guys,

Wondering if anyone knows much about neurorobotics

What i am trying to do is get a off the shelf system which can scan the brain for brainwaves for certain thought in which i can interface with a system i have created and to trigger it.
From what i understand there are a few existing easy to interface systems. One system i know of commercially is the; which is the EPOC but this would be a expensive and complex system for what i need it for.

Any ideas would be much appreciated!

You need a digital, non-medical electroencefalogram (EEG). I remember seeing one a few months ago that can be used with a computer game, although I think it may be the same thing you put a link to. What do you want to do with it? If you want it to react to one specific thought, then it probably won't work. What these things do is pick up on certain general brain states- whether you're asleep or awake or if you're calm or thinking hard. It can pick up on a few other general points, but is often quite difficult to use. It is impossible for it to read people's minds.

What is neurorobotics?

Neurorobotics is a field of research that combines neuroscience, robotics, and artificial intelligence to create robots that are inspired by the structure and function of the human brain.

How does neurorobotics work?

Neurorobotics involves studying the brain and its cognitive processes in order to design and develop robots with intelligent and adaptive behaviors. This is achieved through the integration of sensors, actuators, and computational algorithms that mimic the brain's neural networks.

What are the applications of neurorobotics?

Neurorobotics has a wide range of applications, including healthcare, education, entertainment, and industry. Examples of neurorobotic systems include prosthetic limbs, autonomous vehicles, and assistive robots for the elderly or people with disabilities.

What are the benefits of using neurorobotics?

Neurorobotics has the potential to create robots that are more intelligent, adaptable, and capable of interacting with the environment in a more human-like way. This can lead to advancements in various fields, such as healthcare, transportation, and manufacturing.

What are the ethical considerations surrounding neurorobotics?

As with any emerging technology, there are ethical concerns surrounding neurorobotics. These include potential issues with privacy, safety, and the impact on employment. It is important for researchers and developers to address these concerns and ensure responsible use of neurorobotic systems.
