Apparently the story is true.
I looked it up on the new scientist website.
Although I don't believe this video is real because the device in new scientist is different and no one is allowed to touch it without alcohol sterilized gloves because it is in a germ free laboratory not a living room.

its nt a whole brain, just neurons, in a vial, within the robot.. and showing that would have opened it up to un-steralized conditions.. also this isnt a hoax, fake videos dont get into newscientist magazine.. this had a big double page spread a few weeks back.

The brain would have to be kept in a sterile environment.Also robotics and electronics are created and tested in a sterile dust free environment.That is a fact.
This is nothing but a remote controlled toy.Don't you think the video would show the device where the brain is kept if it were real?
