Beaming into the world of rats

A research team at the University of Barcelona has conducted an experiment that allows humans and rats to interact in a virtual environment.
The so-called 'Beaming' technology, allows a human in virtual reality head gear to view the rat in human form, whilst the rat experiences the human as a motorised robot.
