Would you connect your brain to a computer?
 
Scientists invent a new neural interface system. The researchers claim that it will allow the human mind to transmit data directly to a computer, and vice versa, at speeds several orders of magnitude higher than any human-computer interface system we have available. They claim to have had success with a few human volunteers, who were able to "meld" with a computer, but they need more test subjects. Some surgery will be required to embed the interface port into your body.

Poll attached.

If they are connecting me to some mech(a) or large or highly destructive military robot then yes. Otherwise, no.

I'm not sure I want to read it, but the normal practice would be to include some kind of reference to the topic you are discussing--e.g. a news article, book, etc.--------or perhaps you are just speculating?

To answer your specific question: No-one uses any kind of surgical instrument on me unless there is a life or death health issue---even then, it's not obvious what I would allow.

I know that it is not what you asked, but not if it is Windows. NFW.

Didn't work out too well in Robocop 2.

That isn't part of the project, per sai, but I'm sure DARPA would be waiting in the wings with a project to do exactly that, which you could volunteer for once you had your port. I know that, in real life, we have the exoskeleton technology necessary. (Though, not full Mech size, of course.)

Yes, a primitive prototype, but I'm glad they have at least this. I was thinking more like:

I know, it's a long way off, but I would volunteer :)

They used the wrong guy, they should have used me ;)

I only get one brain. If it crashes, I'd instantly be transformed into a Windows user! :p

Am I the only one who remembers this cinematic masterpiece ?
