Just A Bit Frightening

I just found an interesting (though SEO unrelated) article on the Forbes website from back on the 8th. As it turns out, Japanese researchers have “built” the first remote controlled human. Using a headphone-like device, a human being can be controlled remotely through a DC current delivered to the mastoid behind the ear.

This effect causes the person to shift their center of gravity and, if the current is high enough, this shift will cause them to change directions in movement.

In it’s first stages this crude devise is bulky and serves no particular practical purposes howeverif we consider that the first computer (to the right) was 7,000 kg (60,000 lb), and contained more than 18,000 vacuum tubes and yet still did less than a calculator you could buy at a dollar store today one has to wonder where this technology is going.

You can read the full article and watch a short video of this technology “in motion” on the Forbes website.
