Using Moths to spy on Terrorists

June 28, 2007

At some point in the not too distant future, a moth will take flight in the
hills of northern Pakistan, and flap towards a suspected terrorist training
camp.


But this will be no ordinary moth.


Inside it will be a computer chip that was implanted when the creature was
still a pupa, in the cocoon, meaning that the moth’s entire nervous system
can be controlled remotely.


The moth will thus be capable of landing in the camp without arousing
suspicion, all the while beaming video and other information back to its
masters via what its developers refer to as a “reliable tissue-machine
interface.”
