It must have been a Republican roach. They really had to force it to go left.

Looks more like hitting the left/right key probably gives it a poke or shock on its right/left side so it turns away from the intrusion/pain. That`s not controlling, it`s herding remotely. o.O

Yeah, yeah, toe-may-toe ... toe-mah-toe ... but you know what I mean.

I don`t think they`re controlling its mind. I think they`re controlling its legs.

True, you can see the L and R at the bottom of screen. The thing on it`s back looks like it might detect the line on the floor and send signals.

On youtube I saw a guy remote controling roaches by putting an electrode on each of its antenna. When he stimulated the right side, roach turns left. Probably what they are doing here.

It`s not mind control.

Who in the world thought thought mind control is a great thing for humanity for research. What good will come of it?
