Turns out that some Cal-Tech dorks glued some rat heart cells to a piece of silicon. Put it in water and zap it with a pulsing electric field and it wiggles – a phenomenon that has been well known for decades.
Now I like bath toys as much as the next guy but really… if this can make it into Nature why can’t I seem to find funding for my own experiment?
The graphics are priceless.
