    Oh great, people worry about cell phones causing brain cancer, but don't think twice about sending electricity through their heads? And they wonder why they can't walk straight? :bugeye:

    This gross electrical over-riding of the delicate vestibular system is obviously dangerous, despite any claims made to the contrary. There'll be side effects and lawsuits down the road.

    How can this be used for virtual reality video games? How many lives do you get? I suppose you can always put the helmet on another person when your first life expires.
