Some engineers are thinking about what humans can do with their brains. A team of students at the University of Florida, with the help of Dr. Juan Gilbert, the Andrew Banks Family Preeminence Endowed Professor and chair of the UF Department of Computer & Information Science & Engineering (CISE), are bringing those ideas to life by controlling drones with their brains.

Efforts by Gilbert and his team took flight on April 15 after the group hosted the second annual Brain-Drone Race. About 40 people attended the free event at the Florida Gymnasium on UF’s campus.
