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

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.
