Arati Prabhakar—director of the Pentagon's advanced research arm DARPA—has revealed a breakthrough achievement in machine mind control. Jan Scheuermann, a 55-year-old quadriplegic woman with electrodes in her brain, has been able to fly an F-35 fighter jet using "nothing but her thoughts."
Scientists in the US have successfully linked the brains of six people, allowing one person to control the hands of another using just their thoughts. Researchers from the University of Washington in the US have managed to link-up two people’s...
"+Autodesk's genetic engineer Andrew Hessel is working to fight cancer on a new level: a personalized, affordable one, using 3D printed oncolytic viruses, which literally break cancer cells apart."
"He makes fighting cancer sound very simple with the idea of viral engineering, which encompasses using software to design and make viruses — and 3D print them. Obviously, there is quite a body of research and work that goes into making that a reality."

It will almost surely mean technology inside of our bodies, constantly monitoring changes and updates within our very bloodstream, as computers continue to shrink in size."
