American scientists managed to turn a mole into a cyborg

Just imagine: once a butterfly or, for example, a bumblebee flies into your room. Now imagine that he has a miniature spy "bug" in his belly, and the bumblebee's flight itself is controlled from the outside.

It turns out that this is no longer a fantasy, and work on the creation of cyborg insects has been carried out in the United States for almost 10 years. The ubiquitous DARPA was the first to put its hand in this, and the researchers at the University of North Carolina continued the research. As a result, they managed to implant the control module into the body of the moth at the moment of its transformation from a pupa into a butterfly.

But that's not all. They managed to create a mini installation that makes it possible to display the structure of electrical impulses for controlling the movements of a moth during flight. This, in turn, is a direct road to the creation of algorithms and electronic circuits that turn an ordinary mole into a controlled robot.

Reincarnation takes place as follows. First, electrodes are applied to the outer shell of the pupa, which, after turning it into a butterfly, are naturally inside.

Among the prospective professions of cyborg insects are reconnaissance, external surveillance, environmental monitoring, search for victims of disasters, and much more.
