I find the whole think kind of surprising, since it is known that the whole brain doesn't go to sleep at the same time. Sleepwalking happens when part of it isn't asleep at all.
Neat. Could be used during surgeries instead of anesthesia, or could be weaponized to disable enemy combatants.

Something about a beast named DCLXVI ? Dacelixovius the bigfoot?
And let me guess: we'll all be riding on hoverboards...
AI has to get in line behind my flying car.

Obama has nothing to do with it.
Don't get excited about my post, Mr. FBI Man. You already have a file on me because I'm a liberal. Just find the file and increment the counter for the number of times I've pointed out the unwelcome obvious.
