My weekend begins with a call from a friend in Lebanon who needs to get out and asked if I could help…..I will do what I can but I am too far away to be much help.
Enough of life…..
I recently watch an episode of Dr. Who about a guy that could plug his brain into a computer and get info that is needed. I thought then how long before that in not fiction but reality?
I then read a post that seem to confirm what I was asking……
The U.S. military is disclosing a super soldier project, revealing to have allocated funding of $65 million dollars for a program to develop a ‘Brain-Computer Interface’ that would allow participants to plug into a computer like the movie The Matrix. No this isn’t science fiction Neo, this is the future that the MIC wants for its soldiers.
Earlier last year in January, DARPA launched Neural Engineering System Design to research technology that could turn soldiers into cyborgs.
The military wants to use these programs to “give soldiers supersenses and boost brainpower.” Four teams will be responsible for increasing vision and two on hearing and speech. The military adds that this will help develop “new treatments for patients with sensory disorders.”
I am still in the process of confirming this….but I do not doubt that the government would sink to this level….do you?
All this money being spent to make war “better”….and so little spent looking for a way to make it unnecessary….I guess it is all about priorities, huh?
My day is going well….now just waiting for the time that I can sit among the grape vines and have some wine and a bit of Brie and crackers……
Hope your day is as enjoyable and I will be back tomorrow…see ya….chuq
