A remote control that controls humans

MSNBC – A remote control that controls humans

this is some freaky, yet neat technology.  It could be really useful for people with damage to their semicircular canals (the part of your inner ear that acts as a level sensor) or the attendant nerves.  People with impaired vestibular sense have a terrible time adjusting to either a lack of sensation, or a constant sensation of vertigo.  so this could really be a big help.

It could also have applications in simulators–it may be easier to stimulate a pilot or driver’s brain to make them feel off balance rather than build a motion platform or have them ride the vomit comet.  Although it could be a pretty freaky experience, if it is proven to be safe and effective, it could have good applications.
