Army still serious about mind control

We have heard so many times of the odd tech that seems to fascinate the military. For the most part we see that there is no substantive science behind the projects. Most often they quickly phased out and forgotten. One project seems to continue netting support over and over again. Shaun Saunders notes that Time magazine online reports of renewed interest in the science of mind control. Not so much of people, but soldiers in the field having control over machines. In the article: ....the U.S. Army has just awarded a $4 million contract to begin developing "thought helmets" that would harness silent brain waves for secure communication among troops. Ultimately, the Army hopes the project will "lead to direct mental control of military systems by thought alone...."

The pic at right show just how many brain-wave reading sensors the Army scientists want to cram into a helmet.
