RoboRoach

Calling itself the “world’s first commercially available cyborg” the RoboRoach uses microstimulation of a cockroach’s antenna nerves and a combination of your smartphone and a Bluetooth control unit to wirelessly control the insects movements.

Developed by Michigan based Backyard Brains the creators of the company Greg Gage and Tim Marzullo both have Ph.D.s from the Neuroscience Program at the University of Michigan and their hope was to create an accessible tool for students to learn about nature and become interested in how brains work using the project.
