Well, this is quite fun to look at, although the controls are.. quite simple, as you may see in the video. I think any other insect (well, not all) could control this ''car''
It's quite fun actually. Man, that I never thought of that...

Cockroach Controlled Mobile Robot" is an experimental mechanism that uses a living Madagascan hissing cockroach atop a modified trackball to control a three-wheeled robot. If the cockroach moves left, the robot moves left. Infrared sensors also provide navigation feedback to the cockroach, striving to create a pseudo-intelligent system with the cockroach as the CPU.

It actually works just like a mouse, With the whole ball thing.
I wonder how the cockroach feels..
Maybe very powerfull and like a evil mad ruler
Or he's just so dumb be doesn't know whats going on..
I don't know
