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?

Can't be real. It looks like someones home or office.This would be videotaped in a sterilized lab environment.I don't think tech of this magnitude would be allowed to be taken home or played with in an office.
They did do an experiment once by implanting a squirrels brain on a microchip and then implanting the chip in the brain of a rat.
Right away the rat started to crave acorns.

I always thought this was illegal. Then could this be fake?

It does seem a bit cruel. That poor rat has no idea what is going on.

On the other hand, that is by far the creepiest thing I have seen for a while.

On the other, er, foot, that is AWESOME!

Skull kid, it can't see. Idiot. And it is controlled by the neurons of the rat. Pay attention.

"Several rat brains have been used".
They should use death row inmates.

If this is real... then awesome!
But for all I know this could be a walmart toy rolling around that floor. Couldn't they show us the brain?!

Jeesus thats creepy.
Amazing, but kinda creepy. Maybe its the music?

Can it see? Does it still have cognitive thought?
Or is it not like that at all?

wow.
