Technology that allows a drone to be piloted using a person’s brainwaves has been demonstrated in Portugal, reports BBC News. Drone specialist Tekever adapted existing electroencephalography (EEG) technology to enable a pilot on the ground to send instructions to the drone software, a technology it calls Brainflight.

Tekever told BBC News that the technology could enable people with restricted movement to control a UAV. Tekever believes the technology could eventually be used to pilot cargo planes, but experts say safety concerns will be a major roadblock.
