Biotech Youtube Collection

Here's a few interesting Biotech related videos, I hope you enjoy them as much as I did. This first one has the added bonus of having the Forbidden Planet soundtrack.

More creepy monkeys with robot arms. Note the caption in this one: "Reenactment"

The fact that heavy metal has begun to address biotech related issues is a sign of its coming relevance to everyday life.

Naturally, people who oppose the science tend to be morons and ideologues- like the morons who oppose nanotech, nuclear power, and other related spooky sciences that your average joe cannot understand. How can you tell someone who's starving or making a living on their crops that they should use crops with lower yields?

Enjoy the vitriolic comments from people arguing for the rights of cockroaches to be free and unfettered by robotics experiments.

Those roaches are enormous.

Also, heres a totally overhyped presentation of interesting video of the Braingate NI. Once again, the comments section has anxiety about robot overlords transmitting Fox News directly to your brain. Also, bionic men.

Of course, theres no shortage of people who are willing to call all of biotech the coming of an "apocalypse" or of the "end times." But tell that to the paraplegic and the starving. I love a wacko as much as the next guy, probably more, but anti-scientific thought is so potentially popular that its extremely toxic to our society.
