Robot Controlled by Rat Brain

August 14, 2008

What the hell is going on?!  These scientists were obviously too busy jerking off rats for their precious zombie gamete to notice this, or this.

In Reading Univ. in the United Kingdom, a bunch of dudes with shaved heads and maniacal laughs living in a dormant volcano cloned rat neurons and then put them in a computer chip.  They noticed regular responses from certain stimuli and were basically able to make a rat brain cyborg robot. 

Right now it can avoid walls.  How much longer until it can avoid conventional weapons?
