In a breakthrough discovery, a team of scientists has found a way to hack into the human brain using everyday gadgets like smartphones and tablets.
The technology works by sending specific signals to the brain through the devices, allowing researchers to control a person’s thoughts and actions.
While some have hailed the discovery as a potential tool for treating mental illnesses, others are warning of the dangers of such mind control technology falling into the wrong hands.
“Imagine a world where anyone with a smartphone can control your every move,” said privacy advocate Karen Green. “It’s a terrifying thought.”
The scientists involved in the project have assured the public that they will only use the technology for ethical purposes, but concerns remain about the potential for abuse.
