Remote contolled Humans

Scientists have figured out how to remotely control the direction and balance of a walking person.
Just as the REM song says:
If you are confused check with the sun
Carry a compass to help you along
Your feet are going to be on the ground
Your head is there to move you around

Researchers from Prince of Wales Medical Research Institute and the University of New South Wales in Australia, and University College London have found that the human that human bipedalism is accomplished by two types of processing: balance and steering.

Their research allows insight into the unique upright walking of humans and also how to control the vestibular sensations. By stimulating the nerves that carry information from the semicircular canals they can make a person turn or lean.

They expect that their new understanding will lead to new therapies as well as virtual reality applications.

Also it can also be used to make human robot slaves like NTT's Parasitic Humanoid.
