U.S. scientists have created a remote control flying rhinoceros beetle. "They look cool, according to the university [scientists]," who are funded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, aka, the military.
They were surely building on previous Japanese work which lead to remote control cockroaches. "They look nicer," report the scientists, "when you put a little circuit on their backs and remove their wings."
Need we consider how utterly horrifying it must be to have each step controlled, click by click, by a leering group of giants who titter over plucking off your limbs? STEP! Oh god no! STEP! My god the edge of the table! STEP! AGGHHHRRR!
A clever Google Earth science project has already shown that cows can be controlled by magnets, and work has begun on monkeys.
Next step? Humans. We've been trying since Pavlov. Or did we already succeed?
