Even worse...
Think Torture!

Imagine the things you could do with a device like this such as a woman giving birth, then having a guy wearing a device which enables them to experience what that woman went through? Pure torture for the guy, especially if you could amplify the experience. Or how about someone getting skinned alive? You name the torture, it could be recorded and used to torture victims without even doing anything to them other than the first original torture of course. The CIA would love such a device.

I think it's awesome even though it can be easily replace with a webcam or infraredbeam attached on the arm for tracking the finger. Although this controller could be placed inside the human body while a camera can not.

The first thing I thought of when I saw that device strapped to that guys arm was a primitive form of the biotic moves in Mass Effect :)

Will this finally give the ipod touch the buttons it's been desperately needing? Probably not, but it sure would be cool though.

Mildly interesting- but you'd have to wear a wristband, and using it seems unpleasant, as tapping has to be quite hard for it to work. I'd prefer OLED touchscreen on/under my skin.

Dunno what it says about me, but I thought the same thing, I mean come on, use your body as a touchscreen? how do you not think porn when you read that? Also would I get extra points if I used this on my GF and double clicked her mouse? :p

Yes, that bio acoustic array looks much smaller and easier to carry than a cell phone.

Seriously though, I am glad they are doing this research, it advances human kind.
