I just realized this was from 2004. Ah well, fascinating anyway. Wonder whatever happened with all that.

Well, there was a biohacking group in Los Angeles doing neural tissue cultures to replicate similar work.



Regarding the other comment that was asking about how flying a jet might be insufficiently advanced: basically it's just wired up to Microsoft Flight Simulator, and the neural outputs are hooked up to the essential inputs and controls of the simulator. Hooking up an actual tissue culture with an electrode array tends to be more difficult (or at least more work) than wiring up keyboard bindings to a weight-summer network thing.
