This is the coolest thing you'll read today.

 

 

 


Eventually, some of the students could just imagine their physical action and the paddle would respond onscreen. “Wow, that’s really good. I’m really impressed,” said Schwarz, as one student made the paddle move while sitting motionless, imagining a leg kick.

 

 


The mind-control Pong game is just a simple example of the power of technology that may one day let the paralyzed walk. The lab’s goal is to have a paralyzed person control an exoskeleton with her brain to perform the opening kickoff at soccer’s World Cup next year in Brazil, said Dr. Laura Oliveira, a senior research scientist in the Nicolelis lab.

If only we could flip our cassette tapes "hands free" on a continuous play will I say we made it to the future.

    • I hope not because I wouldn't have a clue how to pronounce his name. Is that an L or an I? 
    • I would love Tarik, balled out at my alma mater. Would be great for him to be a panther.  
    • some people are assholes for their own benefit. like yeah i believe you were a bowtie boy and i believe you logic'd yourself into affirmative action bake sales and such but to me there is a fundamental difference between a person who is just wrong and a person who harbors terrible beliefs from which they stand to gain. yeah i ridicule both but imo there's being a smug dork calling for an end to minimum wage and there's literally blaming victims of rape for their rape. i would leave my sister/wife/daughter in a room with college republicans because like what are they gonna do, impose a flat tax on them? but the type of person who says "well what did she expect? men have their hormones you know..." is someone who has probably had some uh...questionable sexual encounters. and yeah i know you tried to draw a parallel between yourself and arsen wrt the specific topic at hand but it seems like you were trolling and dumb whereas this dude's literally going into biological justifications for rape. convert the willing sure but nothing he has posted leads me to believe he is willing.
