Giant Madagascan Hissing Cockroach Pilots Robot
This project has been posted on Vimeo for the past two years, and somehow has just entered my radar now. Get this: A robot is manned by a Madagascan hissing cockroach. Each movement the roach makes (perched atop a trackball type ping-pong ball) controls the movement of the robot.
See it in action:
Dually amazing and creepy. Read about the project in great detail here.
