Worm's Brain in Lego Robot
Zeb posted a topic in LEGO DiscussionScientists were able to take the brain of a C. elegans roundworm, convert it into programming, and download it into a Lego Mindstorms EV3 robot. And it works!! There is now such a thing as a digital worm. And it is inside a Lego robot. Here are several news reports on it: http://singularityhub.com/2014/12/15/worm-brain-simulation-drives-lego-robot/ http://www.newstatesman.com/future-proof/2014/12/worms-brain-lego-robot-alive-or-just-creepy http://www.nydailynews.com/news/world/scientists-put-worm-brain-lego-robot-body-article-1.2045518 http://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/weve-put-worms-mind-lego-robot-body-180953399/?no-ist Creepy, isn't it?
Chro posted a topic in Bionicle-Based CreationsEarly on in the invasion of the so-called Brain Slugs near Makuhero City and on surrounding planets, many HF scientists decided to experiment with the Slugs and their effects on their hosts. In a process similar to the creation of a vaccine using weakened bacteria, a wounded Brain Slug was forcibly connected to the back of a Rookie Hero by the name of Cade Marler. The ethics of the experiment were just as questionable as the results. As the Brain Slug affixed itself to Marler's spine, the young hero's left side- the right side being his dominant side, a feature integrated into recent Hero personality matrices- gradually became sickly green, twisted, mutated... in a similar fashion, rage, destruction, and distrust filled his mind, and he was unable to control it. The physical mutation of the Brain Slug continued to take root, and so did the mental aspect. Over time, however, Cade was able to regain his control over the mental and physical infections. It became a valuable asset. With enough concentration, The young hero was able to keep the Slug's effect in check most of the time, and bring forth its anger when he needed it most, specifically in battle. The mutated left arm's spiny protrusions became quite useful weapons against all manners of enemies. Marler still has to be careful, though, because if he overexerts himself the parasitic Brain Slug will take control. C l i c k t h e i m a g e a b o v e t o v i e w t h e g a l l e r y . This is a bit of an older build, from five months or so back, when Eurobricks had their Hero Factory Month contests. (Until this point I'd never posted Marler on BZP, only on flickr and EB, so yes, this is allowed as an entry.) I figured it'd be better to participate and post an entry instead of sitting around with no inspiration building nothing, and Cade Marler just happened to fit the category and requirements. As you can tell, a bit of a different style from most of my MOCs. Despite the comparative simplicity, though, I'm fond of it. I tried to use a name here that'd be more fitting of an actual person than a fictional hero. (I guess I succeeded, because apparently, someone- I think it was Invi- has a relative with almost this exact name.) Feedback is appreciated, as are votes.

Ghidora131 posted a topic in Bionicle-Based CreationsNow, the picture quality is rather poor, the model took me 2 weeks to complete. Any way, let me give you the walkthrough: The laboratory: http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/ghidora131/awesome/100_3222.jpg The Mad Scientist: http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/ghidora131/awesome/100_3224.jpg The robotic arm, Amputated Limb, Beaker, and Brain: http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/ghidora131/awesome/100_3233.jpg The Matoran corpse: http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/ghidora131/awesome/100_3234.jpg The Dissection Table: http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/ghidora131/awesome/100_3227.jpg The energy beam Cannon: http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/ghidora131/awesome/100_3230.jpg I hope you enjoy!

Eternity Suit (BBC #66)
turtleman posted a topic in Bionicle-Based CreationsThe year is 5300. Human beings no longer have to die. They can transplant their brain into the miraculous eternity suit. In just thirty minutes the skull is opened, brain is removed and then put into the control capsule at the top of the suit. The person sees through the glass using a complicated telepathic field discovered and refined in the late 4000s. They possess the strength of 50 men and the are indestructible. Now the universe shall receive this wonderful gift of immortality and strength. Get ready to receive your blessing. We're coming for you. When I read the contest I immediately thought of the cyberman from Doctor Who. Obviously the story was inspired by them. I had to take apart 2 big and awesome MOCs to build this guy, but it was worth it. The head is made of a lot of axles stuffed into a cockpit piece. This is the first contest I've entered so any criticism is appreciated. I hope you enjoyed this wonderful ungodly abomination. Bye and prepare for upgrading.
