What happens when you hook up an iPod to a squid’s fin nerve and play it Insane In The Brain by Cypress Hill? If this is a question that has plagued you for centuries you now need to look no further then Backyard Brains. The boys have taken full advantage of the colour changing nature of the squid’s skin to create beautiful patterns that move in time with the music. Check out the video above, which was shot through an 8x microscope. It’s pretty insane … pun intended.
