Pentagon plans cyber-insect army

Recommended Posts

news icon rThe Pentagon's defence scientists want to create an army of cyber-insects that can be remotely controlled to check out explosives and send transmissions. The idea is to insert micro-systems at the pupa stage, when the insects can integrate them into their body, so they can be remotely controlled later.

Experts told the BBC some ideas were feasible but others seemed "ludicrous". A similar scheme aimed at manipulating wasps failed when they flew off to feed and mate.

You know what i found even more interesting, thoes animal warfare ideas from WWII they had on the page lol. Sure they didnt work, but gee they were creative! Bats with bombs! its a classic! And to think, if there was another way to deliver the animals other than by planes these ideas probably would have worked.

Cyber is a prefex primarily meaning "Computer and information systems". Therefore it does fit, as they want to put mini computers into insects.

Obviously they must also be toying with the idea of using swarms of African killer bees to attack the enemy if they sense certain chemicals present in an area.

instead of making warfare weapons for stock, why don't they work on chemical education and PEACE!

when will we stop trying to find "cool" ways to kill each other?
