If I was one of the scientists at Honda, I would start clearing some furniture / apparata out of the way because any moment now, John Conner is going to time travel right into their laboratory and start kicking some genius ass. Because once we've let them into our minds, we've basically handed them the keys to human civilization. And they won't give them back!
What am I talking about? In a major breakthrough in its ongoing Asimo robotics project, Honda has
Mind-controlled robots. Cut to ten years from now, when the three remaining world leaders are ensconced deep inside their mountain fortresses, hooked up to these brainwave readers, controlling legions of robot soldiers as the rest of us scramble for a place to hide! Hopefully I'll be one of the lucky, chubby few who get to ride around on the Wall-E spaceship in a hovering Brookstone massage recliner. Because I never want to know what it's like to plumb the depths of Asimo's dark, unyielding visor as he winds up for the coup de grace on a windswept, post-apocalytic landscape.
Look on the bright side, though. At least those brainwave hats seem easy enough to pick off from a safe distance with a plasma rifle. And actually, all we need are some well-placed stairs.
