"Honda has developed new brain-machine interface (BMI) technology that allows humans to control the Asimo humanoid robot simply by thinking certain thoughts."


This is really, really cool. One step closer to my new cyborg body.

Are we controlling it with our thoughts, or is it controlling us with its thoughts?  Would we even be able to tell?

Are our thoughts our own? Or are our brains merely "thought detectors" receiving thoughts from another source?

Hmm sounds like the Cybermen from Dr Who have been created....is this the first of the Terminator line?
What good is dreaming it if you don't actually do it?.
