I created the ad below for my graphic novel Prisoner of the Mind, thinking that something like this might be possible in the future. Next thing I know, I run across an article about it below. We are living in surreal times.

This system could be used to give soldiers 'super-senses' and boost brainpower!

The US military has revealed $65 million in funding for a program to develop a 'brain chip' allowing humans to simply plug into a computer.They say the system could give soldiers super-senses and even help treat people with blindness, paralysis and speech disorders.
