Much of the newest level of Big Brother-type surveillance seems overly paranoid for my taste, and this just takes it to a whole new level of suspicion. Scientists at Georgia Tech have been dabbling with an idea which is the best thing since Bird’s Ass View. The prospect of producing cyborg SpyBot moth’s, which are implanted with surveillance equipment in their larval stages of development.
The problems start when the moth makes its way out of its larval webbing. How do you control where the moth goes? Scientists are working on an answer for that exact question, with the best idea centering around some bizarre brain control which would take control of the insect’s flying route. — Andrew Dobrow
