Upgrade to Superhuman Reflexes Without Feeling Like a Robot

Electrical muscle stimulation can speed up human reflexes. But can we use it without giving up control of our bodies?We're used to seeing robots with reflexes that are much faster than anything humans are capable of, but it's not just high-speed actuators that make them so quick. Perception and control systems outperform our own nervous … Continue reading Upgrade to Superhuman Reflexes Without Feeling Like a Robot
