Here are some fun quotes: In a new study, published Monday in the journal npj Flexible Electronics, an international team of researchers revealed it has engineered a system to remotely control the legs of cockroaches from afar. The system, which is basically a cockroach backpack wired into the creature's nervous system, has a power output about 50 times higher than previous devices and is built with an ultrathin and flexible solar cell that doesn't hinder the roach's movement. Pressing a button sends a shock to the backpack that tricks the roach into moving a certain direction. ... Notably, because of the design of the ultrathin solar cell, Fukuda notes it could be applied to other insects -- potentially even creating a flying army of robot insects controlled by human hands. Beetles and cicadas are potential candidates. This is a quick read: https://www.cnet.com/google-amp/news/scientists-create-cyborg-cockroaches-controlled-by-solar-powered-backpacks/
