    One step closer to my boyfriend’s vision of a fish in a fishtank with robot legs that the fish controls with its mind. Do you think a fish could learn to walk?

    This reminds me of the wonderful SF writer Cordwainer Smith. I recall that he had robots with mouse brains. The Instrumentality is coming!
