Screw photons, let's try crabs...

They then tried the logic gates for real, using swarms of 40 crabs. The crab swarms were placed at the entrances of the logic gates and encouraged to move by a looming shadow that fooled them into thinking a predatory bird was overhead. The results closely matched the simulation, suggesting that crab-powered computers could indeed be possible.
So... Crabs' brains are like a simple breadboard of logic gates. Which can be assembled into a larger system of logic gates...
Hmmm.. I'm an engineer not a sciencytist... but...

DUH!

At least it would be faster than a turtle computer

I guess they're doing stuff like this for the sake of doing it.
