BBM loves science. Especially the mentos in the coke trick and hands-on anatomy classes.

Backyard Brains, a company trying to get neuroscience equipment into high schools, has developed the Roboroach. A half cockroach half robot remote control car specimen.

We agree with whichever journalist came up with this joke first: they shoulda called it the Robocock.

By attaching a whole bunch of electrical stuff to the cockroach’s brain, the Roboroach can be controlled by remote control.

The device works by tricking the cockroach by stimulating neurons that would usually be triggered when their antennae hit a wall.

The company claims that there are a lot of similarities between the human brain and the brain of a cockroach.

Next, they intend to wire up Kanye West- the closest known human relative to the roach. That prototype will most definitely be called Robocock.

Inspect spray companies are concerned that soon their products will go belly-up with households opting to just steer the pests out of their front doors instead.

That bug from the Mortein ad declined to comment.
