Submission + - 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."
