  1. Now that is really …
    Now that is really slick. I love the tech videos on here, especially when it is simplistic appearing stuff that is far from it.

  2. Very nice. Keep up …
    Very nice. Keep up the good work guys. Looking forward to seeing the future of that little guy.

  3. They should just …
    They should just give it a tale that it can use for turning. It can hold the tail in the air when it is not using it. Come guys this is so simple.

    Ridicul0usly broad spectrum of applications for military use, from explosives to sensors. Teach these things to scatter and swarm, give them a payload and the ability update mission on the fly remotely, and this could completely change, police work, art, warfare, etc. Set up little cameras and have them cruise the room at an art or music show, push the video to wall screens. Drop a few cluster bombs of these into the Afghan mountains with cameras and tiny grenades, they deploy and hunt…

  5. they already have …
    they already have little robots automated with brain cells…I believe they were a rats or pigs cells.

  6. How long until they …
    How long until they hook a cockroach nervous system into it and see what the cockroach would do with it? The roach Matrix is not far away!

    lets build 1000 of them and let them run trough New Yourk, starting on a single rooftop.. that would be epic

  8. Most likely. Actual …
    Most likely. Actual insects usually have tiny hairs all along their legs for gripping.
