WATCH: BioBots, remote-controlled iBionic insects

North Carolina State University researchers are wiring up Madagascar hissing roaches with remote-control steering, with a long-term goal to use roaches, moths, and other insects as data-gathering vehicles in inaccessible places like disaster sites.

Alper Bozkurt and Tahmid Latif demonstrate that by sending stimuli to the roaches' antennae, they can steer them left and right and make them stop.
