But we've had this for years. The trained pieces of plastic are called "news anchors", and they're stuck to the red "on-air" light.

Let me know when scientists have figured out how to train a cat.
That will be an accomplishment.

I see a new market of Chia Pets emerging.

The first step towards self-assembling Legos.

So... Plastic TP is coming soon ?

Also, send this plastic to Washington. It may be our only hope.

This was predicted back in 1967. Does anyone on the Geezer Bus remember The Graduate, except for Mrs. Robinson?
