Your New Graphic Equalizer Has Arrived

Insane in the Chromatophores from Backyard Brains on Vimeo.

A team at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, MA hooked a squid’s chromatophores up to a specially adapted iPod (squid don’t have ears) playing Cypress Hill’s 1993 hit. Audio was transmittted to the squid’s fin nerve as micro-changes in voltage.

The cephalopod was unharmed, though rendered temporarily insane in the membrane.

I wonder if Apple will roll-out a new product….the iCephalopod!
