It Walks! Scientists Turn Beetle Into 'Cyborg' | Video

For decades, robotics engineers have been trying to imitate insects. Now, scientists have gone about miniature mobility a new way: Electrodes implanted into this beetle’s muscles let researchers ‘drive’ the bug. Applications range from rescue to inspection to spy-work. But the ethical implications of this line of experimentation are enormous – and potentially scary. (Full Story)
