levitation, or how to use mind force

Electronics turn a person’s thoughts into commands for a robot:
Using a brain-computer interface technology pioneered by University of Minnesota biomedical engineering professor Bin He, several young people have learned to use their thoughts to steer a flying robot around a gym, making it turn, rise, dip, and even sail through a ring.
The technology may someday allow people robbed of speech and mobility by neurodegenerative diseases to regain function by controlling artificial limbs, wheelchairs, or other devices. And it’s completely noninvasive: Brain waves (EEG) are picked up by the electrodes of an EEG cap on the scalp, not a chip implanted in the brain.

the flying tailor

A film made in Paris in 1912, showing Franz Reichelt’s first and only attempt to fly, from the first deck of Eiffel Tower, at that time the tallest man-made structure in the world. Reichelt used his skills as a tailor to create an overcoat that would allow him to fly. The “flying coat” was a complete disaster, and Reichelt fell like a sack of rocks to his death.
