    That is amazing technology. How would those cells rearrange themselves like that, hookup to electrodes, and just work on a task. I wonder how they presented the information to the "brain" itself. I wonder what would happen if they started to enlarge it, and put something like the sims on it. How would it react then? Cool stuff.

    These scientist types are just so literal...although I can think of some applications for new brains:

    I can see the robotic sentries scanning the streets now. Clay and I will be hiding behind a dumpster with shotguns whispering, "Go for the brain."
  13. That stuff is scarey man.....I think it shouldn't be allowed.....imagine a robot with the ability to make its own mind up about things. It may turn on us, and seeing as robots have metal parts, they would b able to withstand much harsher climates and stuff.

    Anyone see that onion article where after seeing matrix revolutions, MIT discontinued its advanced AI research? Pretty funny.
  16. The brain wouldn't be metal, and we would have to equip the robots w/ something w/ which to turn on us. For now it's just a rat brain in a petri dish playing video games. And besides, they never even said it was good at the games, which it seems likely the media would have even if it was only a small stretch.
