Well, This Is Ironic... Or Something.

Does anyone else find it strange that these two articles (one, two)are on the New Scientist site right beside each other?

The first article describes how brain cells from a rat were used to create a "brain" that can fly a simulated airplane. The second tells us of a microchip that can replace part of the brain... So first they grow a brain to replace a computer, and then they make a computer that can replace a brain... I'm sure there must be a good joke in there somewhere.
