DARPA demos mind-controlled robotic arm | Computerworld

Quote:
The U.S. military is supporting research for a mind-controlled prosthetic arm that is surgically implanted into the user's body.

"This is the most advanced arm in the world," Johnny Matheny, who lost his left arm to cancer in 2008 and demonstrated the robotic arm for DARPA, said in a statement. "This one can do anything your natural arm can do, with the exception of the Vulcan V. But unless I meet a Vulcan, I won't need it."

Not everybody is such a big fan of DARPA.

Just fyi, in case someone is unaware, RT is the official channel for Russian propaganda.
Having said that, no wonder people are afraid, Darpa has always (well, for years at least) on the cutting edge of research and technology, and all new technologies bring new challenges.
Yac.

Thank you for bringing up Russia because it appears that they're working on their own remote neural manipulation technology.

Putin targets foes with 'zombie' gun which attack victims' central nervous system | Daily Mail Online

Quote:
Research into electromagnetic weapons has been secretly carried out in the US and Russia since the Fifties. But now it appears Mr Putin has stolen a march on the Americans. Precise details of the Russian gun have not been revealed. However, previous research has shown that low-frequency waves or beams can affect brain cells, alter psychological states and make it possible to transmit suggestions and commands directly into someone’s thought processes.

DARPA and now Russia's research in to using various radio frequencies to affect human thought processes are just extensions of the work carried out in the 1980's by then CIA contractor José Manuel Rodriguez Delgado. CNN even did a report on the progress of the tech at the time.

At around 0:34 Delgado admits that the technology had progressed to a point that it no longer needed implants to be effective.

Piloting Drones With Mind Control? This Researcher Has Done It

Quote:
A researcher from Arizona State University has found a way to control multiple drones using nothing but the power of thought.

That’s right, he is able to command his own fleet of robots using mind control.

The controller wears a skull cap which contains hundreds of electrodes that are wired to a computer. The wearer then thinks specific commands, the computer translates them into instructions and the robots obey.

LOL, I've been inside DARPA facilities, and the kind of stuff Grizz is trying to get us to believe is laughable. Some of this stuff is pure BS ignorant speculation, and on legit quotes he conveniently leaves out the parts that say the opposite of what his agenda is trying to push.

It will be a long time, if ever, before anybody needs to wear a tin-foil hat.

I'm not trying to get anybody to believe anything other than facts. That's why I put the link to all my sources in each post.

Conference Explores Ethics Behind High-Tech Human Augmentation

Neil Harbisson, thanks to that antenna surgically implanted into his skull, is often referred to as the world’s first cyborg. Should he be the first of many? Should he be the last?
