Sharks controlled by neural implants

shark jumpEngineers funded by the US military have created a neural implant designed to enable a shark’s brain signals to be manipulated remotely, controlling the animal’s movements, and perhaps even decoding what it is feeling.Maybe this is the real solution to shark attacks: have remote-controlled sharks patrolling for their buddies who’ve acquired a taste for man flesh, and tag them with a dart so they can be tracked in real-time.
