Soon, 'cybugs' to access areas where people can't go

London, Sun, 11 Oct 2009 ANI

London, Oct 11 (ANI): In a breakthrough study, scientists have developed what they call a 'cybug', part beetle and part machine, which can be used to access areas where people can't go.


The research team from the University of California has inserted a radio receiver attached to wires into the brains and muscles of large beetles.


They believe that these insects could be used to access areas where it's difficult for people to go e.g. aftermath of an earthquake.


"At the moment, the bugs wouldn't be able to carry a payload such as a camera, or GPS [receiver] so we could track them," the Independent quoted Noel Sharkey, professor of robotics and artificial intelligence at the University of Sheffield, as saying.


"But this research makes me uncomfortable. You never know where we will be in 20 or 30 years," Sharkey added. (ANI)
