This robot has a rat brain

Scientists in the UK (well, Reading) have developed a robot that has an actual brain. Like, the brain is made out of rat neurons. So already this robot is smarter than Biggs.

The scientists, from the University of Reading, put together the robot so they can better study “how memories are actually stored in a biological brain.” That it may help them study diseases like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s is like bonus points.

The brain communicates with the body via a Bluetooth connection, which must be the best use of Bluetooth yet.

So yeah, a rat brain robot. I’m sorta surprised this wasn’t developed in Japan.
