Bioengineers at the University of Illinois at Chicago have developed a mathematical algorithm that can "see" your intention while performing an ordinary action like reaching for a cup or driving straight up a road -- even if the action is interrupted. The idea is to use this algorithm to design machines that could correct the course of a swerving car or help a stroke patient with spasticity. Anthony and Jeff imagine a world with psychic robots and wonder if it will be better or worse.
