"Beaming" technology allows for remote human/rat communications

Earlier this week, we reported on the "beaming" telepresence system being developed by the EU Commission's Community Research and Development Information Service (CORDIS). Once developed, the system should allow users to virtually experience being in a remote location by seeing, hearing and even feeling that location through the sensory inputs of a robot located there. That robot, in turn, would relay the user's speech and movements to the people at that location. Now, two of the CORDIS partners have put an interesting slant on the technology they've used it to let people interact with rats...
