Hard to use this device while eating.

I guess in future it could be implemented inside the tongue or something or directly on your spine

#(removed comment) , Thx for that idiotic response.

While governments might be wrong or mislead, the common soldier is still heroic and courageous. That's JUST his job? Yes but he chose it... he's not selling insurance or writing comments on Snotr like we are... Respect to those who are willing to risk their lives...

No8. Advice - you need to separate what your armed forces are doing and what your government are doing, then react accordingly. It could certainly save your teeth should you adopt that attitude in say, a bar.

You might want to thank your government should it be one of those involved in Iraq/Afgan/Iran issues at the moment because they have not currently adopted the draft - ask your daddy about vietnam.

There is no opt out clause whilst in service - you go where you are told to go and once there you do your best to keep your friends and your self alive.

Show some respect. Your not very clever btw

Amazing stuff. I wonder how far this kind of technology can be taken. Maybe in a hundred years we will have fully artificial sensory organs. Eyes, ears... RESISTANCE IS FUTILE!

#14 Protreptic, don't even bother with RetardedBastard, he is just a hater and nothing you say will change that. The best thing to do with people like that is to ignore them. Because he and his kind do absolutely nothing good in the world, they just complain. Bye the way he has been told he is not clever several times. He remains clueless.

Might come in handy in a poker game if they make a xray version , but #(removed comment) true money well spent but with all this tech cant they just figure out how to do a friggin eye transplant or even hook up a camera straight to the brain , we havent dont much to be honest in the last 20 years and the potential is there

if we put porn, soldiers, USA, Iraq and useless wars on one side; this device and all the similar devices are meant for all people that needs them the most. i think only science and technology can save and prosper humankind, not crude oil or some stupid percentage ;)
