It almost sounds more like the way a jockey controls a horse. They aren't hacking into the roach brain, so much as whipping it forward and then turning its head.

If he could do this with cheap off-the-shelf bits, imagine what a government agency with a budget could do... Although, I guess you would still need a camera before it would be really useful. I wonder how much weight a cockroach could carry?

Not exactly new. People have been doing this since at least 1997.
