I would love to have something like this where we could actually "communicate" with our pets so that I can tell my dog that getting into the trash can is a big no-no!

And I thought the Dr. R.J.White was freaky for the full body transplant. Lighting speed I'll tell ya, lighting speed. Now my kids can bother me while I'm away at the store, via mind speak. I wonder if it will all be in telepathic code language like text chat. lol

If you don't think so just look at any politician...
For a while there before our government officials simply stopped caring the US Senate gave deep thought to the ethics of new technologies.

Here’s then Senator Joe Biden grilling Supreme Court Justice Nominee John Roberts about RFID technology and the ethics and legality of future applications.

Now, however, it's become pretty clear that psychotronic weapons are being used on US citizens and no one in the government is bothering to do a thing about it.

I wonder if they are only messing with rat's brains or also with their bodies. They showed a rat today which was 1.5 feet long (without the tail, mind you). It nibbled its way through a concrete wall of a home in Sweden. The family only noticed something was wrong because their cat was scared of entering the kitchen
So once they found out and recuperated from the shock of meeting that rather aggressive giant rat, they called an exterminator who deployed an industrial-size trap. The rat did trigger it, but was so strong that it simply ran off with the trap around its neck. But in the end the poor animal suffocated to death

Talking Mind-to-mind thought talking possible by 2030, scientist says

I saw this and thought I would post it here.


Today we enjoy basic conversations with our smart phone, desktop PC, games console, TV and soon, our car; but voice recognition, many believe, should not be viewed as an endgame technology. Although directing electronics with voice and gestures may be considered state-of-the-art today, we will soon be controlling entertainment and communications equipment not by talking or waving; but just by thinking! Forget Siri, if future-thinking researchers have their way, your brain could soon be chatting away on the phone. A new implant developed by UC-Berkeley neuroscientist, Robert Knight, could create a game-changing relationship between you and your machines. You may soon be able to transmit thoughts via the Internet using a translator chip implanted in the brain that converts thoughts into words.
