Controlling a Toy Helicopter–With Your Thoughts

You might see neighborhood kids, or even grown-ups, playing with remote-controlled helicopters. Well, the remote control that operates that toy may soon take a back seat. A San Francisco company called Puzzlebox has created a toy helicopter that can be controlled by your brainwaves.
