cyborg moths, IEEE Spectrum article
« on: February 19, 2009, 08:19:28 AM »
I thought this to be an informative article about converting moths into cyborgs.

But don't freak out just yet, they haven't yet figured out several important things such as fitting a wireless camera or GPS onto the moth. But they are making good progress.

Attempts by the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to create cybernetic insects (hybrids of biological and electronic bugs) have yielded ultralow-power radios to control the bugs’ flight and a method of powering those circuits by harvesting energy, according to research that will be reported this week at the IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC)
