Robotics

+ - Hybrid robot controlled by a moth's living brain.

EvilMachine writes "Charles M. Higgins, an associate professor at the University of Arizona, has created a robot that is controlled by the living brain and the eyes of a moth.

The robot's motion is guided by a tiny electrode implanted in the moth's brain, Higgins said, specifically to a single neuron that is responsible for keeping the moth's vision steady during flight. The neuron transmits electrical signals which are then amplified in the robot's base and through a mathematical formula, a computer translates the signals into action, making the robot move.
Higgins thinks that in 10 to 15 years, such combinations of will be fairly common.

And maybe some day... in an old book... someone will read about this as genesis 1:27 "So god created the Borg...""

You can't take damsel here now.

Working...
