Pentagon's New Weapon: Cyborg Spy Flies

Guardian Unlimited | Special reports | Pentagon's new weapon - cyborg flies that are spies:
"The Pentagon is trying to develop 'insect cyborgs' able to sniff out explosives, or 'bug' conversations by lurking unseen in enemy hideouts with micro-transmitters strapped to their bodies.The cyborgs - half insect, half robot - would be created by inserting tiny devices into the bodies of flying, hopping or crawling insects while in their larva or pupa stage, so that the mechanisms become part of their bodies and ultimately allow them to be moved by remote control."
