Horses originated approximately 2 million years before originally believed, according to scientists who sequenced the genome of a 700,000-year-old relative of the modern-day horse preserved in the permafrost of Canada's Yukon Territory.
Researchers have used Kinect system to control cockroaches with a remote. The system makes the roach travel a defined path by sending short bursts of electric current through the antennae. The technology has many applications in military and rescue operations.
