+ - 'Cyber-roach' forces rethink on animal movement->

Submitted by Lanxon
Lanxon (1713660) writes "A team of researchers at the Royal Veterinary College in London has built a "cyber-cockroach" ( a cockroach wearing an accelerometer in a tiny backback) to try and better understand the movements of many-legged animals. They found that unlike bipedal creatures, animals with more than two legs don't adjust their movements when walking over a softer surface."
