Default 'Sex chip' being developed by scientists

Stop. Breathe. This is not an ad for Viagra.

'Sex chip' being developed by scientists
Quote:
Scientists are developing an electronic "sex chip" that can be implanted into the brain to stimulate pleasure.

"When the technology is improved, we can use deep brain stimulation in many new areas. It will be more subtle, with more control over the power so you may be able to turn the chip on and off when needed.

"In 10 years' time the range of therapies available will be amazing we don't know half the possibilities yet."


What do you think? Will the NWO soon control our minds through chips implanted under the pretence of helping you?

Or are we just going to reach the next stage of our evolution? Better...stronger...faster.

Crude for now, but as the guy says, in a decade technology should catch up with our imaginations.

You know how this will end, right?

Quote:
In 1956, Olds performed a famous experiment involving a "pleasure center" in the brains of rats. First, each rat was taught to press a bar. Then a miniature electrode was implanted in one area of the rat's hypothalamus. An apparatus was constructed so that every time the rat pressed the bar an electric stimulus was delivered to his brain. In this experimental situation, the rats would do nothing but press the bar. Up to 5,000 stimuli were self-delivered to the rats' hypothalamic areas and the animals would stop only when they dropped from exhaustion. Rats that were deprived of food and then given the choice between eating and self-stimulation always chose the stimulation.

Oh my!

I've heard about these kind of experiments but I must admit they have never really captured my full attention/interest.

Umm... Hate to point out the obvious, but wouldn't have sex for real rather then just your brain being stimulated be a more awesome and about 10000000000000000000% less nerdy?

How old are you? A sex button? You completely missed the point.


They're working on a sex chip now, but as the technology advances,it can be used to enhance (or suppress ) other brain functions.

A populace much like the one in JC's ending in DX2? No problem, simply tweak the emotion center and certain thought patterns.


Electronic warfare would be fought on a new level. Blind entire armies or use their eyes to do the spying for you. Funfunfun

I thought this was a DX board.

Actually I don't think this will have the slightest chance to replace the real thing because it lacks the whole psychological part.

However, as you've already mentioned this obviously has potential for malpractice.

Can't wait to see what happen when the chip malfunctions while on the "On" state.

Meanwhile, the chip turns out to be a controlling device, and soon everyone turns into evil robot-like minions.

Would you really WANT a chip in your brain?

I hear if your short enough they can fit it in your shoulder



Can't see this being of any use with men at least, when was the last time a man had significant trouble getting his mind to wonder off that way?

Couples should sit down together and watch repeats of baywatch...........

If you've ever watched Ghost in the Shell, the cyborgs are routinely having their eyes "hacked". It's how the laughing man pulled off much of what he did.

As far as this chip goes, if they didn't tie it to the external sensory processing parts of your brain that type of thing wouldn't happen.
