Cockroach Controlled Mobile Robot – www.freshcreation.nl

By Garnet Hertz (2005) “Cockroach Controlled Mobile Robot” is an experimental mechanism that uses a living Madagascan hissing roach atop a modified trackball to control a three-wheeled robot. If the roach moves left, the robot moves left. Infrared sensors also provide navigation feedback to the roach, striving to create a pseudo-intelligent system with the roach as the CPU.

    Hmm so it’s not that the roach wants to steer this thing. it’s trying to run away from the LED lights mounted on the device

  5. It would be cooler …
    It would be cooler if the robot had ground vibration amplifiers so the roch can more accurately tell where the ground objects are.

    No, man; you’ve got me all wrong. I just like to with people for the fun of it. haha, it’s nothing personal against anybody.

    Aoes, you are a prime example of the people who have to put down others on here. You jump to umptions. Not to mention you are a hot head. I think you are a few bricks shy of a load

    Oh, I shake and tremble in the wake of your almighty wit. Your mastery of logic has put me at a complete loss, and your insults will cause me to cry myself to sleep for the rest of eternity.

    In all seriousness, I’ve had enough of you already. You’re not even fun to around with because you don’t put up enough of a fight to entertain me.

    In 1800, a young girl named Cass came over to Canada in a maroon boat from North Pole. A crazy man killed her by raping her, kissing her, and hanging her in the closet while having ding dong. Now that you have read this message, she will come to your house with a seven stick knife on a snowing day unless you follow these directions:

    Was that a comeback? I can’t really tell, because what you said didn’t even make sense. Seriously, do you really have a point, or are you faking it in a feeble attempt to defend yourself? You can admit it; please do before you make even more of a complete of yourself.

    Darwin evolved to a dead body and was eaten by tiny organisms. Then respect thy food too, for you are some other creature’s food eventually.

  13. Then you two have …
    Then you two have absolutely no understanding of the workings of the life cycle and have no concept of survival. This makes you both complete freaks of nature. If you’re so afraid of killing living things, then why don’t you stop killing fruits and vegetables too? Quit eating and starve to death if it’ll make you feel more righteous. Let Darwin remove your stupidity from the human gene pool.

  14. one more way …
    one more way science helps humanity.but seriously i belive this is good imagine the possibilities”using a small life form to control a robotic machine” who knows maybe later no humans will be used for war. think about it.

    That’s good karma, mon. Live and let live! And respect to living creatures.
