mind control… sort of…

Chet just sent me an article that belongs to the underused Robopocalypse tag, so, being quite appropriate, here it is!

Apparently, research is being done that would allow AI to control human bodies through electrodes. I’m not sure how far off we’d be from remote control applications; I’m not up to speed on whether the electric stimulation via electrodes can be done with the precision necessary for this control through air as a medium instead, but once it is… we’re so screwed :(
