Cockroaches are often considered pests,…
but general opinion towards the insects could change as they may offer crucial help in rescuing
disaster victims. Researchers from North Carolina State University
have developed cyborg cockroaches… called “biobots,” that are equipped with electronic
packs and high-resolution microphones. They say the bugs can be controlled to navigate
through tiny spaces towards sound that it picks up,… potentially helping first responders
locate people trapped under rubble.
