    lol… they grew the brain cells in the lab.. it wasn’t a brain they’d cut out of a rat & plugged into a robot… but the original cells had to come from somewhere.
    Actually its really weird if you think about it… its the first real cyborg brain (machine driven by living braincell interface… minus the consciousness… one umes??)… and blinkin rats got there first! lol
    Bit like dogs got into space first (now that really was sad.. but look at the advances from that)

    They didnt put a rat brain in it, just brainCELLS from a rat…

    Very true, these people dont even realize the power they wield… its all I took an oath for the betterment of humanity this and ill never win a nobel prize if im not selfless that… what a waste.

    Man, videos like this, while entertaining already, would be a bunch cooler if one of the researchers was acting like a mad scientist and shouting thinks like “MANKIND IS YET TO RECOGNIZE MY GENIUS!”

    So in West Philadelphia you were born and raised, on the play ground is where you spent most of your days?
