Remote Control Pigeons

scientists said they have succeeded in an experiment to remotely control the flight
of a pigeon with electronic technology.

Scientists with the Robot
Engineering Technology Research Center
of east China’s Shandong University of
Science and Technology say they implanted micro electrodes in the brain of a pigeon
so they can command it to fly right or left or up or down.

The implants stimulated different areas of the pigeon’s brain according
to signals sent by the scientists via computer, and forced the bird to comply with
their commands.

  • Both guys own their looks but the simplicity of Chasen’s sinytlg wins me over. His look appears effortless, while Brandon’s comes off slighty overdone with the addition of the small scarf and colorful socks. Less is more wins it for me in this style war.
