Yep, heh.

They are moving on to human brain cells soon it says. So, I'm wondering what company sells human brain cells and what does that invoice look like? (and where did they get the cultures to grow these neurons! eeeeek!)



""To make the system a better model of human disease, a culture of human neurons will be connected to the robot once the current work with rat cells is completed. This will be the first instance of human cells being used to control a robot.

Warwick and colleagues can proceed as soon as they are ready, as they won't need specific ethical approval to use a human neuron cell line. That's because the cultures are available to buy and "the ethical side of sourcing is done by the company from whom they are purchased", Whalley says.""
