NeuroSky to offer thought control without those pesky brain implants – Engadget – www.engadget.com: “NeuroSky (a fab(u)less startup of US chip designers and Russian neuroscientists chillin’ in NorCal) claims a “breakthrough” in non-invasive neural sensors allowing low-cost, dry (no contact gels) neural mapping solutions to be applied to those things you’d most like to mind control (spouse, voters, TV, game console, cellphone).”

ABC News: Scientists Create Remote-Controlled Flies

NEW HAVEN, Conn. Apr 8, 2005 – Yale University researchers say their study that used lasers to create remote-controlled fruit flies could lead to a better understanding of overeating and violence in humans.

Using the lasers to stimulate specific brain cells, researchers say they were able to make the flies jump, walk, flap their wings and fly.

Even headless flies took flight when researchers stimulated the correct neurons, according to the study, published in the April 7 issue of the journal Cell.
