Scientists have connected the brains of a pair of animals and allowed them to share sensory information in a major step towards what the researchers call the world's first "organic computer".The US team fitted two rats with devices called brain-to-brain interfaces that let the animals collaborate on simple tasks to earn rewards, such as a drink of water.In one radical demonstration of the technology, the scientists used the internet to link the brains of two rats separated by thousands of miles, with one in the researchers' lab at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina, and the other in Natal, Brazil."This tells us that we could create a workable network of animal brains distributed in many different locations."http://www.guardian.co.uk/science/2013/feb/28/brains-rats-co...Of course, the network of animal brains in different locations was pioneered by the RWCJ board. The novelty here is "workable."
