Spock, Tony Stark and the Rat Mind Meld

If you are flying your Iron Man suit and need to adjust the left posterior thruster, you sure as heck ain’t gonna reach down and tweak its angle with your hand at mach 2.  To maneuver in the suit in flight (which I’d really want since death by building impact is not how I want to go out)  it’ll help to be able to control the suit with you mind.  On the way to developing his brain-controlled exoskeleton neuroscientist Miguel Nicoleis wired the brains of two rats together and demonstrated that signals from one rat’s brain can help the second rat solve a problem it would otherwise have no clue how to solve.

Wonder if Dr. Nicoleis plans to start off with an exo-RAT-skeleton?
