'Avatar' not far away: US Army Research brain-computer interface demo

This 2 minute 50 sec. video (having a minimum of explanation) is a demonstration by a US Army researcher of two technologies: a brain-computer interface and a head-mounted display (seen on the screen at left).  The brain-computer interface provides movement (forward, back, stop) while the head-mounted display injects directional information. The overall effect (and perhaps it is the musical influence) is a bit…giddy.  Not quite the Army/DARPA neurotechnology research previously profiled [TA 15 Sept] but this editor can project uses in both physical and mental therapy, or in conjunction with the former.  Armed with Science/video
