Borg? More like Bynar.

Yeah, I'm not really seeing anything at all Borg-like in this either. This kind of Brain to brain communication doesn't imply the eventuality result formation of some kind of a hive-mind, nor a loss of individuality.

That's what the pre-Borg scientists said, too. ;)

Nice advance of course. Not unexpected.

Here's another one for you knee jerkers out there:

Cyberdyne:

Thought controlled HAL exoskeleton gets suit safety approval:

So one year from now, you can buy a $4000 exoskeleton, with your $1500 Google Glass...instant high tech off-the-shelf superhero or villain.

Hive-mind? No but I can see an interesting military use and it reminds me of the Universal Soldier movies

Just look out when the government starts offering to deliver babies for free. Chips in everyone's head's at birth!

Anything that has "Cyberdyne" in its name should be nuked from orbit. For science.

I don't expect the US gov't to be handing that kind of stuff out for free.
