    I saw this just now on MSNBC and thought it was pretty cool. So let's discuss, as said in the article if this were to evolve it could be a major thing especially with the paralyzed. Pretty neat stuff.

    While there are obvious benefits, I find the potential uses of this technology to be nightmarish. Let's look at the progression:

    Monkey moves objects with thought control (wired)
    Monkey moves objects with thought control (wireless)
    Humans move objects with mind control (wireless)
    Computer is able to decode human thoughts
    Computer is able to force human thoughts

    I know it's a long way to the last step, but I would not want to live in a world where it is possible for someone, via a wireless computer device secretly implanted, to know what I'm thinking (or control it). It's really the last frontier of privacy.
