Mind Control Drone

Open Source Tutorial

Since the existence of drones, I’m fascinated by them. Those relatively small flying objects that are flying through the sky with a lot of dexterity. Some of them are even able to capture video to make stunning videos. But when I got my first drone, it didn’t survive very long because it crashed into a tree. Piloting these machines was difficult.

What if you could control a drone with your mind?

At my studies, I laid my hands on a portable EEG sensor and I was wondering if I could hack it to control a tiny drone. I believe in sharing knowledge to enable people to do more interesting things. The idea for this project was to share my process and insights in the form of an open-source tutorial. The tutorial is seen by more than 68.000 people and was featured in the Italian Maker Magazine and on the offical Arduino social media pages.
