Wired News: A Sixth Sense for a Wired World

WTF??? Now this article brings back memories of my role play gaming days, specifically the GURPS CyberPunk module which allowed the gamers to play in the post-apocalyptic world of William Gibson (I'm going to have to read some of those books, one day).

But this one, well..... Boy and howdy. In the CyberPunk world, there was always talk of installing hardware in one's body. Being able to connect to computers, or to fire a weapon out of your finger is dark, sexy, mysterious in that scary future of the CyberPunk genre. But implanting the sliver of a magnet in your finger tips? Eerie, odd, gross, stupid, and coooollllll.......

I'll wait until the tattoo parlor can figure out how to keep it safe.
