Public Summary Month 11/2012

We tested our system with a couple of natural objects (telephone headset, cup, tea box, and ball) which are more or less good-natured but which can neither be called artificial nor simplified. Although there are big gaps in the surface reconstruction no problematic artifacts could be observed that prevented the successful grasp of the tested objects when the object was standing upright.

In our experiment BRACOG we could successfully show that it is possible to initiate grasps only by voluntary modulation of brain waves. We conclude that we finished the experiment successfully.
