To say it with one word, it's DISGUSTING.

Have you looked around the site and looked at other projects like the trackball robot operated by a cockroach? What is up with this guy, none of this seems to have any purpose. I suppose though that if we are combining animals and machines then descartes was wrong, animals are not just little machines. There was a distinction. I find these types of experiments disturbing not only because they are done on animals but because they are blurring the line between the natural world and the mechanical. This reminds me of an experiment i read about where researchers implanted electrodes on the brain of a mouse and where they were placed would stimulate the left or right whiskers causing the mouse to turn its head in stimulated direction. Because of the stimulation on either side the mouse was controllable, so they created a remote control mouse.
