Swarming Crabs Act Like Energy Efficient Computers

A team of scientists from Japan and England has developed a computer made from live crabs, and though it sounds like something out of a Monty Python skit this crustaceous computing device could lead to a new generation of ultra-efficient computers. The basic concept is a form of biomimicry, as the  researchers were inspired by [...] No related posts.
