You know, I’ll never be accused of being a fan of the cockroach. Indeed, I kind of wish they would keep to themselves and never pop up in my space. That being said, this is some genuinely messed up stuff. This is a DIY controlled cockroach. Use your ‘smart’ phone to control the creatures movements.
It’s the same old tired refrain: every other creature on this planet is nothing more than a product to be sold, a commodity to serve our own stupid, trite, and basically, nihilistic ends.
If in our cultural consumerist epoch this is where science is leading us, then abandon all hope, ye who enter here.
