'Cyborg artist' is able to feel earthquakes

Moon Ribas can feel every earthquake on the planet through a special seismic sensor implanted in her arm.
The 30-year-old dancer has joined a growing number of people who have had devices embedded in their bodies in order to pick up extra-sensory information that everyone else is oblivious to.

The implant in Ribas' arm is connected up to a smartphone app which receives information from geological monitoring stations around the world and converts that in to physical sensations.

When the magnitude 7.8 earthquake hit Nepal last year for example she recalls waking up in the middle of the night and feeling as though she was actually there.

"I feel connected to the people who suffer through an earthquake," she says.

So, she feels every earthquake? Or just the ones above a certain magnitude? If it's every quake, her arm would literally never stop twitching.

It's for the thrill of saying ''I can feel earthquakes and other people don't!!''. Well, it would be more impressive if she could do it with the power of her mind, not a microchip implant in her arm.

Some people have fetishes. Are you sure the sensor is on her arm?

While this is certainly on the higher scale of "weird", I took the time to view her video presentation, so her activities, for me, are much more in total context now. Doesn't necessarily make it less weird, but does help explain her fascination with "exo-sensing"
