Robot built with a human brain

British researchers created a robot controlled by cultured rat neurons. And now they’re now using a line of human brain neurons to control their robots!

As the video shows, the neurons are placed onto a multi-electrode dish that registers the neurons’ electric signals. “Every time the robot nears an object, the electrodes generate signals to stimulate the brain. In response, the brain’s output is used to drive the wheels of the robot left and right so that it avoids hitting objects. The robot has no additional control from a human or a computer — its sole means of control is from its own brain.”
