New device allows you to control the mind of a cockroach

The $100 device can be attached to the back of a living cockroach and will allow you to control the cockroach’s movements with a remote. After a few minutes the device will lose its effect on the roach, but after 20 minutes of inactivity, you can use the device again.

I don’t know whether this tech is fascinating or truly horrifying. Probably a bit of both. The Roboroach is a small kit that you attach to the back of a cockroach. By “microstimulating” the bug’s antennae, you’re able to literally drive the thing.

What do you think?
