  1. Efforts to create an army of cyborg insects are being pursued by a team of US-based engineers.The team has created an energy scavenging device that is attached close to the insects' wings.

    It suggested the creatures might one day be used to aid search-and-rescue operations and surveillance.


    I guess the emphasis will be more towards 'surveillance' part of this innovation. :rolleyes:
