+ - Robot operates without computing control

Matthew Sparkes writes "A robotic salamander with an electric "spinal cord" that controls both its walking and swimming has been developed by US researchers. It could be a forerunner of robots with movements coordinated by an artificial nervous systems, they claim. The movement is controlled by a series of simple coordinated motions, and not by a central processor, and mimics the way in which animals run without thinking about the placement of each step. It's the reason that a chicken can run after it's head is chopped off."
