    Hi everybody,

    I bumped into this article about very low voltages applied to the back of the ears allowing controlled involuntary movement of the individual. Effectively creating a remote control that controls humans.
    With wide ranging applications from entertainment (IPOD SWAY?) and video games to military uses like non lethal crowd control.

    In the years ahead, do you think the use of this tech will be beneficial or detrimental?

    Detrimental. Anytime involuntary control is used it is and would be beyond acceptable behaviour

    Detrimental. I for sure wouldn't like it if someone was using one of those devices to make me some sort of half-puppet......

    The radio remote control part is only the proof of concept.
    The real applications would be enhancing video games, like feeling the G-force as you hang a tight corner in a racing game.
    The "ravers" would probably go crazy for this type of thing.

    Guys, if people find out this secret how big these devices can make your ears, they're likely to try it on all sorts of body parts. Then we'll never hear the end of it! :D
