Tesla’s model S may be a pretty clever car in its own right, but technology experts in America have managed to outsmart the car and control it using just brain waves.
App creator Touch Titans has released a video of the impressive feat, which shows an occupant-free Model S being ’summoned’ by a man wearing Touch Titans’ Emotiv Insight brain activity monitor.
?This monitor records his brain waves and cleverly converts them into computer code, which is fed into Tesla’s API tools, and allows him to operate the car’s features using just thought.
Youtube users were quick to query the video’s credibility, with one questioning how they were to know that the car’s summon feature hadn’t just been set to go forward and backwards.
?Touch Titans responded with the offer to demonstrate the impressive technology in its hometown of Dallas, Texas.
