The Living Robot § SEEDMAGAZINE.COM

A cybo-brain made of rat neurons controlling a simple robot with sonar
input. The Researchers took a few rat neurons and grew them in
nutrients until the could be hooked up to electrodes.

Sounds like the kind of superscience you could do at home. We just
need to package home neuron gardening kits, just like sea monkeys or
Chia Pets. Package them up with Lego Mindstorms and you've got hours
of cybernetic fun.

Hat tip Dave Soup!
