China readies remote controlled pigeon airforce

Chinese scientists* have learnt how to 'fly' a pigeon by implanting micro electrodes in the little fella's brains. Its not exactly Airbus a380... beep = up, beeeep = down, beeeeeeep = left... get the picture?

Strangely, the Chinese can offer no practical use for this breakthrough technology. I can think of lots, mostly involving real world interactive gaming. Beats World of Warcraft hands down. And its gets adolescent gamers out of their bedrooms.

Wired picked up the story here. Although no reaction - as yet - from pigeon rights organizations.

*these stories always use to start 'Californian scientists...' times change I guess.
