If you’ve seen Steve Carell’s hilarious version of Get Smart, you know that the two geeky scientists, Lloyd and Bruce, come up with a very technologically-advanced version of a spy device: a robot fly designed to act like a real insect while gathering knowledge.
It turns out that Bruce and Lloyd weren’t onto something new.
Military scientists are currently developing insect cyborgs, or “cybugs,” to work as mini robot spies. So far, they have been successful controlling flying moths with actual tiny implants. Though they haven’t yet been able to attach miniature cameras to these tiny spies, they’re definitely working on it.
