Dragonflies have been turned into “hybrid drones” thanks to a joint effort between an engineering firm named Draper and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. Genetically modified dragonflies, with a tiny solar backpack used for remote control. Tiny neural zaps can steer the insect on demand. This was also tested on cockroaches.
It is going to be used for everything from observing suspects to replacing honeybees as pollinators. Thoughts?
