Another Way of Remote-Controlling Humans

Throughout history, humanity has come up with many ways of making other people act like other people desire, among them the more playful variant of the NTT Parasitic Humanoid, which controls the sense of balance and motion using eletrical Galvanic vestibular stimulation (GVS) and controls the walking rate with Oscillators in the soles of the shoes.

Today Robot Gossip reports, that researchers from Australia and Britain have found a way how to control the vestibular sensations by stimulating the nerves that carry information from the semicircular canals they can make a person turn or lean.

" ... this ability to produce illusions of movement, and then steer and balance the body by external control, leads the researchers to expect that stimulation techniques developed from the approach used in the new study will lead the way to diagnostic, therapeutic, and virtual-reality applications".
