Galvanic Vestibular Stimulation

Or, a remote control that can control you. CNN had an article about it yesterday which you can see here.

Not that any of this is new: the government has been sending controlling people through special frequencies hidden in common household appliances since the 1950s.

Here's the reviewer's account of this bizarre new technology:
"Apparently [this device] can alter people's sense of balance to cause them to walk in a certain path.

A special headset was placed on my cranium by my hosts during a recent demonstration at an NTT research center. It sent a very low voltage electric current from the back of my ears through my head -- either from left to right or right to left, depending on which way the joystick on a remote-control was moved.

I felt an irresistible urge to start walking to the right whenever the researcher turned the switch to the right. I was convinced-mistakenly-that this was the only way to maintain my balance.

The phenomenon is painless but dramatic. Your feet start to move before you know it."
