What if cyborg cockroaches could help us save lives ?
What if cockroaches could save lives, thanks to the action of the man who could control them?
A team of engineers has created a solar powered device which could change cockroaches to cyborgs. In this study issued in NPJ Flexible Electronics, the researchers explain that this process could help rescue teams to reach areas which cannot be reached by men and help detect people covered by rubble in collapsed buildings. « Sometimes, human sized vehicles are too big to get through the rubble», explains Kenjiro Fukuda, engineer at the Riken and main author of the study.
