That's right! I used the idea to safely fly the plane to Seattle.

Tencent Digital (Ben) Fortunately, the weather in Washington State has been very good, which makes my "virgin flying" easier and safer. It was a clear, low-velocity afternoon. Clouds dotted the sky. I sat on the co-pilot of the Beechcraft King Air C90 and was ready to drive it to Seattle.

I was flying for the first time, and I used my brain to fly.

Santosh Mathan of the Honeywell Aerospace Institute of Technology has invented a system that allows people to use their brains and ideas to fly airplanes and sound "science fiction movies", right? But this is true.

First of all, you need to be dressed up like this: Put on a hat like a blue swimming cap with 32 electrodes touching your scalp and an old cable to connect your computer and a dot matrix printer. It looks like a ponytail.

I don’t have a flight license or any flight experience at all, so don’t expect me to have full control of the plane. However, wearing this "blue swimming cap", I can operate the aircraft's basic climb, descent and turn, like this:

The copilot position of this aircraft is special and paired with the headgear system. Anyone who sits here can learn how to operate a plane up or down for a few minutes, which is very cool.

First of all, pilot Dubbury launched the plane and took off. After reaching a certain height, he began to instruct me to let me operate the aircraft and continue to climb. How to do it? It's actually very simple. Did you see the screen in front of me? It is an external display device for the headgear that lets you know what you are doing.

This interface looks like a black and white, boring directional control game. I only need to focus on "up and down". The cursor on the screen will stay above the arrow, and a green frame will be displayed. It has already received my thoughts.

Amazing? In fact, you may have guessed that the electrodes on the headgear can detect my cortex and brainwave activity, and the computer algorithm can handle this part of the signal, understand the active area and calculate the position. Of course, the actual operation is not really comfortable, because I wear headphones, endure airline control information and cabin pressure, and concentrate on the arrows on the screen and try to think about the direction I want.

However, this system can really operate accurately even if it takes about 10 seconds to react. At some point, I feel like God. Of course, the entire system still needs to be further improved. Santosh Mathan said that in the subsequent work, the reaction speed and feedback will be strengthened, allowing the operator to feel more comfortable in operating the aircraft.

After a period of flight, we finally landed safely. I felt a bit of a headache. It may be a little nervous, or it may be due to the need to concentrate on narrow small planes, noise and physical pressure. But there is no doubt that I am excited. The brain control operating system may one day be able to be used on a large scale in the aerospace field to allow people to fly more flexibly.

There are also some scholars and experts who disagree, such as Beata Jarosiewicz, a neuroscientist who was once responsible for the Brown University and Stanford University programs. He believes that the electrode cap is not reliable enough, because it is not enough to deal with the fast-paced thinking process, "For example, do you want to avoid the mountains or the cliffs, can you be 100% guaranteed that it will reach the operation effect in a reasonable time?", Beata Jarosiewicz I doubt it.

However, there are also many people who believe that science has infinite possibilities, just as no one believed 113 years ago that humans could fly to the sky. Santosh Mathan also admits that the entire system needs more time to perfect, and may use non-delayed synchronous operation with more advanced brainwave sensors in the future, but even now, the system has certain significance. For example, pilots can perform non-critical tasks Use it to operate.

In addition, Santosh Mathan also believes that the current research value of this system lies in how to make pilots more focused and attentive, and reduce the accident rate. Perhaps it also has some value in the field of automatic car driving.
