Take a long look at the above series of photos. Go ahead. We'll wait. They essay a monkey controlling a robot arm with his thoughts. Let that sink in for a second: Scientists (presumably mad) are using technology to create monkeys that telepathically bond with robots. Hey, monkeys: We're really sorry about all the vivisection.
The monkeys' brains adopt the mechanical appendage as their own, refining its movement as it interacts with real objects in real time. So monkey hungry: Use robot arm to get food! Monkey angry, smash labratory! Burn City!
The technology will eventually be used to help people with spinal injuries navigate the world, provided of course, our telepathic robotic monkey overlords allow it.
Having brought you this news, we believe TheFeed's mission has been completed. All Hail Koko, our many-armed supreme ro-monkey commander!
