But it's so pretty....

Some good news for grunts sick of playing Where's Osama? in the Afghan hills...Robo-moth is on the way! The super-clever bods at the US Department of Defense are to begin engineering the first combat cyborg - a moth lava implanted with a microchip, so that when the insect has fully developed it's nervous system can be controlled by a remote control, the idea being to flutter into the enemy camp and transmit back (see also: Bart Simpson, "Nobody suspects the butterfly"...heh).

Now that is cool.

Bet they have some teething problems though, I can't help being a little sceptical about total artifical control...nature, as they say, finds a way...

What happens when someone turns on a light? Zzzp!
