We Are Borg
Chemists at the University of Nebraska, there must not be much else to do there, besides their football team sucks. Anyway, those chemists managed to create a cyborg by uniting a nanobot with a living bacteria.
Much like the borg:
The bacteria must stay alive during their assimilation so that they do not leak any internal fluids and lose their shape. According to Saraf, the bacteria can survive for about two days without nutrients. However, the device continues to work even after the bacteria die; the zombie ‘borg-teria’ continue to work for as long as a month after death.
Cheese and crackers people.
Did you catch that? The device continues to work, even after the organism has died. FOR A MONTH!
What could possibly be the use for technology like this?
