Fox News had a fascinating interview with Michio Kaku, author of "Physics of the Impossible," in which they discussed Toyota's creation of a mind-controlled wheelchair. The wheelchair works by using "brain-movement sensors that learn the characteristics of what you're thinking."

Kaku explained that the brain always emits radio waves that, with newly advanced computers, can be read and analyzed for patterns to know what you're thinking. This can then be used to energize machines, like a wheelchair, and, as Kaku says, "That's just the beginning."

It's a fascinating interview. Watch a clip below.
