By putting this cockroach in control over a mobile robot, our perception of the animal is changed. Technology empowers the little creature you would normally squash under your shoes. It becomes something else, somethig bigger and more advanced. Yet the technology of this robot might be no more advanced than the stuff this animal is made of. The whole thing feels as evolution: from the day that fish came on land and men started to walk on two legs, to the day that cockroaches started driving wheelchairs. What do you think?
