The coolest point: About 2:18, when then whole mosaic of cells goes nuts. Cells in the club, just tearing it up.
What’s actually happening here is a pretty simple experiment: researchers hooked up an iPod to the (dead) squid is such a way that the squid’s cells were given little tiny shocks in sync with the music. They split the wire so that they could hear the music, too, and see the chromatophores — cells responsible for the squid’s ability to change color — “dancing” with the music. The result video MIGHT be better than the original, in which chromataphores play no significant role:
- Donald Trump says he has picked retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson to be his secretary of housing and urban development.
- Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will visit Pearl Harbor in Hawaii later this month — the first Japanese leader to do so.
- The far-right candidate in Austria's presidential election has conceded defeat, obstructing the advance of the global populist movement in Europe.
