TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – At an exhibition held by the New Taipei City Labor Bureau on Tuesday (May 14), Taiwanese engineers revealed some cutting edge technologies, demonstrating the power of brainwaves to remotely control devices.

One of the remarkable inventions on display was a flying drone that can be activated and controlled by brainwaves using a headband with special sensors installed.

The chief of the New Taipei Labor Bureau, Chen Rui-chia (陳瑞嘉), demonstrated the device developed by the Everget Technology Company (帝壹生醫科技).

A person’s control of the drone reportedly depends on the person’s ability to concentrate. The higher a person’s concentration ability, the easier it is to control the drone. A hostess at the event can be seen trying out the technology below.

The showcase event was held in order to promote an upcoming “Innovation Fair” sponsored by New Taipei City (新北自造者嘉年華) which will be held at New Taipei City Plaza in Banqiao, May 18-19.

There will be 70 different exhibitors at the innovation fair showcasing their innovative creations to the public. The exhibitors at the event are also classed according to three levels depending on their level of product development.

The three levels are “zero to maker, maker to maker, and maker to market.” The fair will be divided into four main categories, which are “work, technology, home and art,” reports Liberty Times.
