That's pretty cool.

I was watching a show on The Science Channel the other night where they were showing a research project where they took rat brain and nerve cells that they grew in a lab, hooked them up to computers and created a sort of bio-computer that was able to control a little robot around a room. Freaky, fascinating, and terrifying all at the same time!
