Interesting stuff



US University shows Radio-controlled Live Beetle

So... obviously a new form of surveillance but to what extent will this led?
How close could they be to programing more advanced nerves systems?

Thanks for looking!
This is my first thread. Sorry if its a little bare.

Interesting article.
A good way to post is to pull a paragraph or sentence out of the article that gives an idea of what it is and add it in to the first post.
Good subject for first thread. I've never seen it.
The surveillance buffs will dig it.

Brace yourselves for the blowback from the first strike. The war is about to begin.

Keep your eyes open, and observe carefully. This will be just the first phase of the final lesson for the impostors. I hope we will never reach the third phase. If we do, it will be the final completion of the final lesson. Done and over, once and for all. Permanently.

From this point on, every decision counts.

The University of California, Berkeley succeeded in the experiment of controlling a live rhinoceros beetle by radio and disclosed the video of the experiment at the MEMS 2009 academic conference taking place in Sorrento, Italy.

Researchers at the university controlled the movement of beetle wings and some other parts using radio signals sent to the six electrodes on its brain and muscles. They equipped the beetle with a module incorporating a circuit to send signals to the electrodes, wireless circuit, microcontroller and battery. The university has so far succeeded in several experiments of electrically controlling insects, but it used a radio control system this time.



This will be the hottest Xmas gift ever
Remote control bugs!

I cant wait until they come out with a RC controlled fly that will make all those mini chopper nuts so jealous!

LMAO!!!! Great one Slayer! How did you come up with that gem?

On a separate note, this OP isn't much of ground breaking news...we've had radio controlled beetles since the late 60's. But I think only Paul McCartney is still alive

I didn't know that I thought they were working on real robotic fly's not using real bugs

Something similar was done with a rat a few years ago. You can probably find it with Google, if you are interested in this sort of thing. I don't remember what team did it, but it was not long after 9/11 and one of the applications they mentioned was sending them in to search rubble if something like that happened again.
