This technology could prove highly lucrative if applied to the gerbil market.

That was one long farking article, Though scientists will continue to build their cyborg animals, Maharbiz says he fully expects that "kids will be able to hack these things, like they wrote code in the Commodore 64 days."and this is the part that bothers me.

FTA:  "if they began with live insects, they'd already be halfway to their dream flying machines. All they'd have to do was figure out how to hack into insects' bodies and control their movements. If scientists could manage to do that, the DARPA pamphlet said, "it might be possible to transform [insects] into predictable devices that can be used for ... missions requiring unobtrusive entry into areas inaccessible or hostile to humans."


Boy, I would love to have been a fly on the wall in THAT meeting.

   I vow never to agree with peta on anything but this shiat makes me ill. The poor kitty didn't wander onto the road by accident you morons, she was horrified by what you turned her into and committed kitty seppuku.

so Coronal_Mass_Ejection you are worried by the idea of 14 year olds hacking a cockroach? Me too because if I had that kind of power the first thing I would do is have a cockroach climb up my friend's butt during class. This can go wrong in sooooo many completely hilarious ways.

Well we never attached cameras or mics, but when we were kids we would catch cicadas and tie some string on to them. Then let them go & the buzz around like your own miniature RC plane, with no controls of course. Cheap childhood fun.

THEY sent A SLAMHOUND on Turner's trail in New Delhi, slotted it to his pheromones and the color of his hair. It caught up with him on a street called Chandni Chauk and came scrambling for his rented BMW through a forest of bare brown legs and pedicab tires. Its core was a kilogram of recrystallized hexogene and flaked TNT.

Driven past the point of endurance by their working conditions, the Wal-Mart workers of Pascagoula unionized and formed a picket line in the parking lot.  Then the hordes of Banana Spiders, making clicking noises as they walked, showed up.

DARPA may be taking the whole "remote controlled bear cavalry" concept a little too far..
