Controlling someone else’s arm with your brainwaves
Feb 12, 2017
This is a video of a presentation given by Air Force Lieutenant David Tumey, Principal Investigator of the Brain Actuated Control Laboratory, AAMRL, Wright-Patterson AFB, OH to faculty and students of the Biomedical Engineering Department at Wright State University, Fairborn, Ohio on July 25, 1988. In this video, 1Lt. Tumey, uses his Alpha brainwaves to control the output of a Neuromuscular Electric Stimulation (NMES) device to raise and lower the arm of a volunteer. In effect, Dave’s brain is connected to the volunteer’s nervous system. Both the NMES and Alpha brainwave equipment are non-invasive! It is believed to be the first time one person’s brain is used to control another person’s movement. The video was recorded on VHS tape almost 29 years ago and was lost. Recently, the video tape was rediscovered and the pioneering technology it captures can now be shared with everyone.

No doubt this has been fully weaponized by now.
