from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Nature has had a few billion years to evolve some pretty useful abilities, but people are always trying to improve upon what's already available.

Implanting electrodes into brains or having insects control robot bodies are ongoing experiments -- and there are a few other projects combining biology and machines that could be even more cutting edge. After you've finished checking out those links, check out this holiday gift guide for some awesome deals at the Techdirt deals store.
