If an army of robots comes knocking on your door someday in the not-too-distant future, they might be powered by the brainwaves of Michael D. Willard. Mr. Willard, 23, of Sturbridge, was part of a four-member Northeastern University undergrad team that created a “Steady State Visually Evoked Potentials — brain-computer interface” that can control the movement of a robot using signals produced by his visual cortex (in other words, brainpower). This cutting-edge technology went on to win first prize in the university’s electrical and computer engineering capstone project competition last semester.
