Scientists iron out the bugs to harness cyborg-roaches for rescue work

Summary by Ground News
An international team led by researchers at the RIKEN Cluster for Pioneering Research (CPR) has engineered a system for creating remote controlled cyborg cockroaches, equipped with a tiny wireless control module that is powered by a rechargeable battery attached to a solar cell. Despite the mechanic devices, ultrathin electronics and flexible materials allow the insects to move freely. Scientists have been trying to design cyborg insects—part insect, part machine—to help inspect hazardous areas and monitor the environment.
