beetle-bot.jpgNo I’m not talking about internet viruses here… I mean cybernetic bugs – cyborg beetles. That’s right Darpa is at it again creating a radio controlled beetle through implants on a living beetle. The “upgrade” is just a portion of the insects “max payload” so strapping some sensors (or lasers) on next is a distinct possibility.

Tho apparently scientists hope to be able in the future to use the beetles own “sensors” (eyes) and “power source” (metabolizing food).

-sigh- And judgment day moves one step closer.
