Our new magnetic overlords

Did anyone else see this article on Gizmodo and get a little freaked out? Apparently some scientists in California have found a way to use magnets to cause a flip in human (and guinea pig) dexterity. It’s called Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation and right now it only works on people that are right-handed. As Giz says,

“I don’t know why you’d want to be a leftie, but at least we know the choice is out there now.”

All joking aside though, I hope there’s some crazy magneto type character that takes advantage of this technology in the next Bond movie.
