on their heads!
New Scientist Technology wrote:IMAGINE getting inside the mind of a shark: swimming silently through the ocean, sensing faint electrical fields, homing in on the trace of a scent, and navigating through the featureless depths for hour after hour.

We may soon be able to do just that via electrical probes in the shark's brain. Engineers funded by the US military have created a neural implant designed to enable a shark's brain signals to be manipulated remotely, controlling the animal's movements, and perhaps even decoding what it is feeling.


It's a relatively long article - so you can read more about it here

I wonder if it'll work. :huh: :hmmm: It seems quite mean, I mean imagine if someone could make you smell mamamia's great lasagne when you were walking through a poo-wee seperator, then all of a sudden "turn the scent off" just as you were talking a deep breath.
I love sharks, they're so cool! :thumbsup: I hope they eat the guys who did that to them...and all the hippies.

If they can do it to a shark it may mean doing it to mammals is on the cards too. Imagine having an army of bears and tigers to do your bidding :love:
