A joint venture between Tohoku University and Hitachi (NeU) has just borne fruit in the form of a Gundam Zaku that moves using brain waves.

Based on a preexisting Bandai Zeonic Technics GUNPLA model that could be built then controlled using a smartphone app, this new concept takes it a step further by tapping into the blood flow of your brain using a head sensor, thus allowing you to control the Gundam figure using simply your thoughts.

While still only in the testing phase, the company has already dropped a teaser video of the NeU Bandai Gundam project in action.
