A research team at the University of California Berkeley just announced that they managed to implant electrodes into a beetle successfully, where this operation enabled scientists to control the insect’s movements in flight. This research could full well see action in military operations in the future, after all, the research itself was supported by the Pentagon’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. Ultimately, these mind-controlled insects could be used to “serve as couriers to locations not easily accessible to humans or terrestrial robots”. Creepy.
