The U.S. Military Wants to Inject People's Brains With Painkilling Nanobots That Could Replace Medicine
This is not science fiction. The U.S. Military is making plans to inject people’s brains with artificially intelligent nanobots that will give them awesome, Wolverine-like powers to heal themselves.
DARPA, the American government’s controversial, ultra high-tech military gadget and research lab, is developing wireless, “ultra-miniaturized” and injectable electronic devices that could eventually -- and quite literally -- get on people’s nerves. Luckily only in ways that heal their pain and keep them healthy. Or so the Department of Defense-funded agency says.
Functioning in a seamless, “closed-loop system,” the government's smart nano doohickeys would act like mini remote controls that automatically monitor and regulate the body’s peripheral nervous system 24/7. They would constantly adjust the users’ internal organs and how they respond to injury, infection and other imbalances.
Yep, the little doodads could one day help people heal themselves. Let’s just hope that’s the only thing they’re used for (insert skeptical, mind-control comment here).

There's just one problem. Human health is not a priority, weapons and war are.
You can forget about Xanax.

I would ask how it can be used against the person it's in. DARPA research tends to be weapon based.
