As you can see in this video, an elastic cap with electrodes was put on the heads of participants. The cap receives electric patterns from the brain and sends them to a control box for actuation.  According to RT, it took only a few minutes for participants to learn how to use the device. Such a solution helps quadriplegics and people with other mobility issues live more independently.
