Skynet is self aware. I mean brain in petri dish flies simulator

Brain in a Dish Flies Plane
By Jennifer Viegas, Discovery News

Oct. 22, 2004 A University of Florida scientist has created a living "brain" of cultured rat cells that now controls an F-22 fighter jet flight simulator.

Scientists say the research could lead to tiny, brain-controlled prosthetic devices and unmanned airplanes flown by living computers.

And if scientists can decipher the ground rules of how such neural networks function, the research also may result in novel computing systems that could tackle dangerous search-and-rescue jobs and perform bomb damage assessment without endangering humans.

But could it run both political parties in Election 2008.

That's the bigger question.
