So I was reading on yahoo yesterday that scientists hooked up a Longfin Inshore squid with electrodes to an iPod nano and played Cypress Hill. I have no idea why they chose ‘Insane in the Membrane’, but I think it’s awesome that they did. The squid’s skin possesses pigmented cells (chromataphores) colored in yellow, red, and brown. When the cells contract, the color beneath is revealed. The video is viewed as an 8x zoom under a microscope.

Here’s the full story.
