No way are these goldfish over the age of 16. But they have learned how to drive a car.
Scientists trained them over a period of days to recognize a specific target where they would get a reward - food. Using cameras to interpret a fish's movement, it's translated into directions given to a vessel, whether it's a small one on the wall or an actual vehicle on wheels over pavement.
My goldfish would always poop a lot. So I suppose the tremendous advantage here is that they never have to stop.
Also, if they can train goldfish to drive, what's wrong with everyone else!?
