Put simply, this “Cockroach Controlled Mobile Robot” is one of the strangest creations we’ve seen. Basically, a Madagascan hissing cockroach controls a three wheeled robot by being placed atop a modified trackball. It was developed by Garnet Hertz, who specializes in “animal-machine-hybrids”.

From the article: This project was inspired by a number of different things, including thinking about biologically inspired (“biomimetic”) technologies and also seeing and thinking about scientific and artistic experiments in bio-hybrid/robotic systems.
