VIDEO: Monkey Mind-Controlled Robot


www.blacklistednews.com

When our robotic overlords finally do take over, there's a decent chance they'll do it with monkey brains. A few years back, Duke neuroscientists, funded by the Pentagon, figured out how to have monkeys control robotic arms with their little simian minds. Now, if that wasn't unnerving enough, the same Duke crew has discovered a way for one of the monkeys to make "a 200-pound, 5-foot humanoid robot walk on a treadmill using only her brain activity," the New York Times reports. How far away are we from the ultimate sci-fi dystopia: Terminator and Planet of the Apes -- at the same time!

WOW. This is crazy. Imagine monkeys doing all of the work of the bad guys. In a previous thread of mine, someone stated that primate research is not done very often due to being very expensive. Well, what do you say to this???!!!!!
I am surprised PETA isn't all over this thing. It would be nice if it is used to only help paralysis victims. But when the Pentagon has money in it, you can guess the intent behind that.
