Previous attempts by IBM have simulated 40 percent of a mouse's brain in 2006. They managed a rat's full brain in 2007. Unlike Renfield, they've apparently skipped past the flies and spiders.
So, what's it like having a computer that simulates one billion neurons and 10 trillion synapses?
- It's hard to wake up after it goes into hibernation mode.
- Wireless mice keep disappearing
- You have a computer that can lick its own I/O ports.
- You have to program it in LOLSpeak.
- It REALLY hogs your bed.
