World’s first cyborg jellyfish beg the question: Why?

Researchers from Stanford and Caltech have developed a way to control the swimming speed of live jellyfish using removable microelectronics. The intended goal of these first-of-their-kind cyborg jellyfish is to someday swim through our oceans measuring the impact and effects of climate change. Jellyfish were chosen for the experiment because of their energy-efficient way of swimming, their prevalence throughout various ocean ecosystems, and because they have no brains or known pain receptors.
