Flying by thought control


Recommended Posts

Well perhaps not for a thick-skulled Gnu but interesting nonetheless. Germans think very logically and methodically of course. Dunno what happens if your passenger is a hottie and your thoughts drift from flying...

[/url]Pilots of the future could be able to control their aircraft by merely thinking commands

 

. Scientists at the Institute of Flight System Dynamics of the Technische Universität München have now demonstrated the feasibility of flying via brain control—with astonishing accuracy.

 

 

 

The pilot is wearing a white cap with myriad attached cables. His gaze is concentrated on the runway ahead of him. All of a sudden the control stick starts to move, as if by magic. The airplane banks and then approaches straight on towards the runway. The position of the plane is corrected time and again until the landing gear gently touches down. During the entire maneuver the pilot touches neither pedals nor controls."

 

 

 

Pretty sure there was a science fiction type novel about some Russian fighter jets in a dogfight operating under thought control.

Not sure about a novel, but there was a movie called Firefox:

And for something simpler there's a quadrocopter drone that is controlled by a virtual reality helmet, so it goes where you look:

1. Cylinder head temperature increases

 

2. Joystick starts twitching

 

3. Flaps extend

 

4. Cockpit gets warmer

 

Sorry, where was I?
