Scientist are working on cyborg turtles

Technically, this is a robot turtle, but you get it.

The main problem with animals is that we can’t control them. You can say you have your dog trained, but when the food supply runs out, who’s really the master? Cats do whatever they want, and every other animal you come into contact with does whatever it feels like doing at that time. Thanks to science, soon we will have remote-controlled turtles.

Researchers in South Korea are working on creating cyborg turtles. If everything goes according to plan, you could one day control the movements of a turtle using only your mind. These folks want to put a system onto a turtle’s shell that would send it signals on which way to navigate. The human controlling it would wear a headset that would read brainwaves, and send commands to the turtle-mounted system over wifi.

So basically, it’s Dino Riders, but in real life. The future is going to be awesome.

Attack of the cyborg roaches

Roaches are bad, but they are easily taken care of. Robot roaches? That’s a different story.

Scientists in Japan are putting batteries on roaches in an effort to control them. Their plan is that by creating cyborg bugs they can check radiation and air quality levels, helping to keep cities clean.

Or they’re just failing to see that they are creating the perfect instrument to bring down all of mankind.
