DARPA To Unleash Deadly (Prophetic?) Wasps Of War

What can hover, dash and fly in almost any direction while transmitting sensitive electronic information on its wasps.jpgwhereabouts and surroundings? Here is a hint: Probability is high that this latest hi-tech gadget will become integral to US national security in the near future. One might incorrectly answer that this new gadget is the infamous military drone, the Predator or Reaper Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) that were at one time loaded with missiles and bombs by Blackwater and then used by the US military to target and kill suspected terrorists and other insurgents from within Pakistan. However, the answer, and the latest development funded by the Pentagonís Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), is a flying 'cyborg beetle,' an actual insect that has been surgically altered so that a human can control its flight direction and movement. The research and development on these cyborg insects are being developed by universities and businesses across the US, but is part of a larger DARPA project titled the Hybrid Insect Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (HI-MEMS) Program. While the project has been running for three years, much of the time was dedicated to learning how to attach neural transmitters to the brains and muscles of various insects in order to control their otherwise natural movements with electronic and radio controls.
