Researchers from Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University create cyborg insect

NTU researchers have developed what they say is the world’s smallest cyborg insect, which they can move right and left, backward and forward, with the click of a button.

The researcher’s motives are entirely altruistic, developing this technology for rescue operations to help find survivors in disaster areas where the insects can crawl through cracks and crevices. It is planned that, eventually, the insects will carry a range of sensors which will indicate the presence of trapped survivors.
