Its funny when people still question how a jet could be controlled remotely when you read the following about what we can really do...

original article
www.newsoftheweird.com...


University of California researchers, on a Pentagon contract, announced in January success at rigging a live flower beetle with electrodes and a radio receiver to enable scientists to control the insect's flight remotely. Pulses sent to the bug's muscles or optic lobes can command it to take off, turn left or right, or hover, according to a report in MIT Technology Review, and the insect's "large" size (up to a whopping four inches in length) would enable it to also carry a camera, giving the beetle military uses such as surveillance or search and rescue. The researchers admired the native flight-control ability of the beetle so much that they abandoned developing robot beetles (which required trying to mimic nature).

S & F wow this is very interesting I remember reading something about a similar procedure being preformed on a rat but obviously this is much more useful.

However, kind of scary as well.
