Mad, Beautiful Ideas
Remote Control Humanity

I've known about the sensitivity of our Inner Ear for a long time. But this is just amazing. The Japanese have developed a specialized headset which can allow someone with a remote control to force a person to move they way they want them to.

They use specialized electrical signals that mess with your sense of balance, making you think that you need to move a certain direction so you don't fall. It's painless, though disorienting, from what the article says. Creepy stuff.
