ONE DAY, I WON'T WAKE UP; I'LL JUST OPEN MY NEW EYES. AND SCREAM. AND SCREAM. AND SCREAM. AND SCREAM!
so... another 10 years before cylons walk the earth?
I can't believe we are actually living this shit right now.
Perfect choice of ominous music in the background...
I hope we at least get some of those breakfast pills George Jetson was talking about before the inevitably clanging Rise of the Cybermen.
I have no mouth, but I must find cheese.

This is a flan worthy breakthrough! Kya ha ha ha!

I can't wait for the Singularity people to start trying to merge their brains with computers. It's gonna be like that scene from Robocop where they all go insane until some laws get passed.
Don't worry. Bruce Willis, Will Smith, Christian Bale, Peter Weller and Harrison Ford will save us when the rat-brain cyborgs rise up against us.
No, Harrison Ford is the demons
And then Deckard was a replicant.
Some see SCIENCE! tag, I see Staring into the abyss of human leisure time tag instead.
Every single rat reacts to being plucked out of its body and placed into a mechanism differently.
At least they've proven that rats have individual personalities...
I'm not so sure how I feel about calling this the first example of a machine controlled "entirely by living tissue." At best, that sounds like a weasel-worded attempt to ignore all the previous research along these same lines. For instance, consider this lamprey-controlled cyborg:
Also consider radio control cars which are also controlled by living tissue, just kinda indirectly.
I believe the definitive source of eel cyborg info is:

That music is spot on.

Everything Xiphias has ever done has been done in vain.
The BBC article says they hope to gain insights into Alzheimer's with this device. Sorry to disabuse people of their hopes for humanistic breakthroughs, but the first use of this will be in some kind of guided weapon.
You mean like an updated version of B.F. Skinner's offer of pigeon guided missiles for the Army?
Years later, after the smoke and the fire, and the cooing, after the ruined wrecked of so many cities, so many millions of lives, they looked back with regret at their short sightedness.
By God, did they regret.
Skinner said he, and his pigeons, would make them pay.
By God, did he make them--and all of us--pay.
It'll be like the cyborgs in "Diamond Age" where they combine a cruise missile's speed and destructive power with a dog's instinct to run up to people and lick them. So deadly rocket powered puppies.
operationalize "behaved differently" would you

Do rat cyborgs dream of electric cheese?
Just waiting until I can get my matrix deck and simstim rig.
the music did it for me. without it it would have been less scary. basically reminded me of forbidden planet for some reason.
And I too would throw in ten to see it dressed up like a dalek...
Better do it now while they're still adorably incompetent like the old Daleks and are always running out of power or falling over. We know how this story ends.
that is an unhappy rat brain

I hope the Rat Race loon works this into her fanfics somehow.
|Spastic Avenger |
Anybody getting Plague Dogs vibes from any of this?

I, for one, welcome our rat-brained robotic overlords.
So that's who stole my Roomba
