[quote:Anonymous Coward 27932711:MV8yMTQzMDE2XzM2MTkxNTg0X0I2MjVFNkQ3] Tats great 4 ppl with disabilities and all, but in a few years when sht like this hits the mainstream, everybody will want 2 enhance their human capabilities i'm sure of it... The age of the cyborgs is coming my friends. You all will be faced with a hard choice. Will u keep up with societe by enhancing ur brain, but loose ur humanity and disconnect from ur true inner powers @ the same time, or stay boring and acheive those goals trough hard work and meditation... Why are we always in search 4 the magic pill... Well i'm definitely choosing to leave my brain the way god intented thank you. Think about it, nature is ALWAYS more efficiant than anything we will ever build. So while the pll who choose the implants will only limit their powers, mine will keep growing... Maybe @ a slower rate but when i finally reach their levels, they will be stuck there until the technologie becomes better, i'll keep growing. No one will control my evolution but me. [/quote]
Scientists have created a "sixth sense" by creating a brain implant through which infrared light can be detected.
Although the light could not be seen lab rats were able to detect it via electrodes in the part of the brain responsible for their sense of touch.
Similar devices have previously been used to make up for lost capabilities, for example giving paralysed patients the ability to move a cursor around the screen with their thoughts.
