You know, science always asks "could we?" but they don't ask "should we?" enough.

Because researchers at Rice University in Texas are reanimating dead spiders and turning them into robots. For real. They call them "Necrobotic grippers" because they're using the spider's legs like a crane machine. Apparently, they inject air through a syringe into the dead spiders and work their legs like hydraulics.

After they finished giggling from all the gummies they had (just my speculation), they claimed that necrobot spiders could be used to do tiny tasks like build microchips. And they said dead robotic spiders are good for the environment because they're rotting bodies are biodegradable. Uh-huh.
