RoboRoach lets you control cockroaches

If you’re not afraid of cockroaches and are an avid fan of mind control, you’re going to love this. Backyard Brains has released a kit called the RoboRoach that allows you to gain control of a cockroach. No, you won’t be able to make the roach attack people or simply lay eggs all over the place, but you can control where you want it to go to. The RoboRoach sends electrical pulses to the antennae nerves of the cockroach, which directs them to turn to the direction you want to. Currently for some strange reason, it only works on 25% of roaches. If you’re interested in finding out more, head over to Backyard Brains. Hit the break to watch RoboRoach in action:
