US Army To Develop "Thought Helmets"

$4m spend as Army hopes it will 'lead to direct mental control of military systems by thought alone.'be radio without a microphone,' says Dr. Elmar Schmeisser, the Army neuroscientist overseeing the program. 'Because soldiers are already trained to talk in clean, clear and formulaic ways, it would be a very small step to have them think that way.'

One potential civilian spin-off: a Bluetooth Helmet so people nearby can't hear you when you talk on your cell phone."

IMO: Will it be the like the traditional UK "send three and fourpence, we are going to a dance" rather than the intended "send reinforcements, we are going to advance" ? Peace in our time, maybe ? And will Blackwater etc. be allowed to send thought advertisements about how wonderful Bush and Cheney are, during commercial "breaks". The wonderful world of capitalism ! Slashdot readers also have their views.
