      <http://www.tomdispatch.com/post/174912/nick_turse_the_pentagon_s_battle\

      already growing insects with electronics inside them. They're creating
      cyborg moths and flying beetles that can be remotely controlled. One
      day, the U.S. military may field squadrons of winged insect/machine
      hybrids with on-board audio, video or chemical sensors. These cyborg
      insects could conduct surveillance and reconnaissance missions on
      distant battlefields, in far-off caves, or maybe even in cities closer
      to home, and transmit detailed data back to their handlers at U.S.
      military bases. Even more frightening is the prospect that such
      creatures could be weaponized, and the possibility, according to one
      scientist intimately familiar with the project, that these cyborg
      insects might be armed with "bio weapons."
      It's entirely creepy and worth a look:
