There are all sorts of remote control rodents and cockroaches out there now – but I guess they’ve stepped it up a notch and created a remote control flying rodent cockroach hybrid (also known as the common pigeon). Now, not only can they control in which direction the pigeon flies, they can also control when it releases its little whitish projectile. Researchers say they are working on a laser guided shit release system and hope to have it installed in the next version of the robotic mind controlled shitting pigeon machine.
Scientists in eastern China say they have succeeded in controlling the flight of pigeons with micro electrodes planted in their brains, state media reported on Tuesday.
Scientists at the Robot Engineering Technology Research Centre at Shandong University of Science and Technology said their electrodes could command them to fly right or left or up or down, Xinhua news agency said.
“The implants stimulate different areas of the pigeon’s brain, according to signals sent by the scientists via computer and force the bird to comply with their commands,” Xinhua said.
Researchers were caught in NYC messing with poor tourists from the midwest by sending red eyed rabid looking pigeons walking after them. A man from we’re assuming was from Wichita Kansas or somewhere similar was seen running right back into Penn Station to get back onto his train to take him back home. Of course that could have been any one of a number of crazies that hang around the train station. On the other hand…Perhaps pigeons do this creepy stuff on their own. Ok never mind – perhaps it isn’t a pigeon mind control conspiracy.
Or is it…
What would you do with a remote control pigeon?
