Fitted with all sorts of sensors and extra gadgetry, this BMW i3 can be driven by your mind on an enclosed track at very slow speeds.

"MoneySuperMarket’s Car Insurance Epic Mind Drive gives customers a once-in-a-life-time opportunity to drive a car with their mind. Watch Carol Vorderman get in the driver’s seat of the world’s first mind-controlled electric car in our epic video."

"The car is controlled with an electroencephalogram (EEG) neuro headset, using sophisticated software algorithms to translate raw EEG data into mental commands. Each user must train with the headset so it can decipher their thought patterns and learn their unique mental topography. The software is then able to recognise distinct thought patterns and using some complex electronics, wirelessly sends these commands to the car’s controls."
