Thought-Controlled Robot Avatars: Boon for Disabled

Robot avatars will provide a new level of freedom and interaction for the disabled, elderly, or bed-ridden that they do not currently enjoy -- some even controlled by a user's thoughts, say scientists, inventors and enthusiasts. These avatars will "fill in" for those who are not able to physically attend -- communicating for them, said science fiction author Robert Sawyer. NEWS: Humanoid Robot Learns Like a Child "This is liberating for the person [who is disabled]," Sawyer told FoxNews.com. Wilford used a "telepresence" project called NetHead to connect with the world from home, a free-standing terminal that serves as a robotic avatar.
