Latest Job Taken By Robots: Lab Rat

Scientists at the ITAM technical institute in Mexico City have created a GIANT ROBOT LAB RAT using a Sony AIBO dog as the hardware platform that "thinks" and acts just like a real rat in standard laboratory experiments, such as a maze. The rat-bot "learned" how to navigate through a maze, and move through it differently and faster after learning.
