Some Brits have come up with a robot that is controlled by rat neurons. I don't know about you, but I have images of Ratbert dressed like a Borg running through my head.
There are some pressing questions, though. Does the robot crave cheese even though it doesn't eat? If the project doesn't get funding, will it jump like a rat off a sinking ship?
I won't even get into the ethics or other scary items around this. However I guess this means that daggets aren't very far off. That'll be convenient at the rate we are destroying life on earth.
