The Tech that Created the World’s First Mega Soldier
By MONEY MORNING STAFF REPORTS
From sniper to tank drivers, New Tech is changing the way we prepare for war
A new technological breakthrough has been adopted by the military that would give soldiers abilities typically illustrated in children’s comic
We’re not talking about a pill, or injection. We’re talking about a new device – one that’s projected to be in 64% of U.S. homes by 2020.
The U.S. military has made significant investments in new this new technology, and plan to implement the use of it in a wide variety of training
exercises, ranging from specific combat scenarios to trauma management.
As uses for the technology continue to expand at an accelerating rate, so does government investment, as well as from some of the world’s biggest
Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook invested an astronomical $2.1 billion in this technology – before it even hit the market.
Microsoft’s CEO jumped in with $150 million, stating that this technology has “mind-blowing potential.”
And Google’s, Larry Page, recently headed a funding round worth $542 million to get his company in on the ground floor.
EDITOR’S NOTE: Money Morning has arranged for 500 prototypes of this device to be sent free to our readers today. Supplies are very limited. Go
here to learn how to claim yours.
According to analysts, the market for this type of technology is already set for blistering growth.
In fact, a recent published report from several Silicon Valley venture capital firms believe this single technology could soar “over 13,000% in the
next 3 years.”
Time Magazine says the breakthrough has the potential to completely “revolutionize the way we live.”
Watch the presentation below to get a full rundown of this breakthrough and the little-known company that holds virtually all of the patents for
ok - now you have read that what is " it " ?????????????
if you are honest and admit that you have no idea - that dear readers is your first clue that you are teetering on the edge of a scam
because the only way to find anything else out is the ` click bait ` links - all of which go to the same A/V " presentation "
you will listen to a very slick snake oil sales man who makes lots of fantastic claims - and drones on - before finally after a mind numbing monologue
- invites you to send him money - i refused to do the next click
this particular itteration of the scam is a claimed souper douper new technology called " neural imprinting "
if you have the fortitude - watch / listen - and take notes - every annecdote presented - jot down the key names etc for later use
thats the time to run like hell - assuming you made it through the presentation .
now assuming you didnt drink the kool-aid and " invest "
its time to reveal the source of this idiocy :
see the domain name - thats another big red flag - just read the disclaimer for mirth value only
now step back and google all the names from the annecdotes - hint use "............." to narrow search parrameters
ie " neural imprinting " , dont use neural imprinting
also use site specific searches on goofle advanced search
remember how it cited time magazine ? with the claim “revolutionize the way we live.”
would it surprise you to learn that time.com has no articles on " neural imprinting "
nor any evidence of walter reed hospital using " it "
nor has google scholar got a single linked paper on the topic [ thats relevant ]
infact no annecdote cited returns a single relevant hit [ mirrors , reposts , etc etc dont count ]
i am not sure how many people fall for these things - but they must have some success rate - or they would not be published
thus ends the rant
these things hare a formulamatic scam based on templates - dont get sucjed in - educated your frends etc if they ask your advice - and for fook sake
dont use them as cites in ASTS posts - cos i will fling poo
