Backyard Brains' RoboRoach is sparking an ethical debate. The company ships live roaches and neuro stuff to 'install' in it so that one can, for example, control the animal a bit with devices like an iPad. I find both the ethical discussion and the science itself very fascinating. Overall, I have mixed feelings about this being available commercially. Take a look at the article for some of the pros and cons.
