So, now that the critters can be controlled, how can we control them with the buzzword of the day?
We can go further: node.js and arduino!
Node.js can control "bots" using the nodebots project. Their schtick is to have the node.js on the PC, and connect to an arduino which does the "embedded stuff". Like twiddling the GPIO control lines. Perhaps attach the lines to the neurostimulator, or perhaps have the arduino do the wireless.
