Brain's best Port is the Tongue

TasteBattlefield2.jpgCNN ->  Researchers are now looking more closely into transmitting information to the brain via the tongue. By routing signals from helmet-mounted cameras and other equipment through the tongue to the brain, they will give soldiers superhuman senses similar to owls, snakes and fish. In testing, blind people found doorways, noticed people walking in front of them and caught balls. From CNN-> Researchers at the Florida Institute for Human and Machine Cognition envision their work giving Army Rangers 360-degree unobstructed vision at night and allowing Navy SEALs to sense sonar in their heads while maintaining normal vision underwater — turning sci-fi into reality. A version of the device, expected to be commercially marketed soon, has restored balance to those whose vestibular systems in the inner ear were destroyed by antibiotics.
