Military Developing Half-Robot, Half-Insect ‘Cybug’ Spies

This is pretty cool.

From Live Science:

Miniature robots could be good spies, but researchers now are experimenting with insect cyborgs or “cybugs” that could work even better.

Scientists can already control the flight of real moths using implanted devices.

The military and spy world no doubt would love tiny, live camera-wielding versions of Predator drones that could fly undetected into places where no human could ever go to snoop on the enemy.
