We all know roaches can go anywhere. But they don’t take direction very well…or do they? At North Carolina State University, researchers attached a tiny wireless electronic receiver and transmitter to the back of a roach. The “robo-roach” could steer the roach along a line, using electric charges that made the roach think its antennae were touching a border. Thus directed, the roaches could be trained to search disaster sites for survivors or perform in other tight conditions that are hazardous to anything except roaches.
