Scientists Have Figured Out a Way to Make Cockroaches Search for Disaster Victims!
Since it's dangerous to send people into collapsed buildings . . . and it would take too long to clear the debris away to look for survivors . . . researchers have found a way to send in remote-controlled cockroaches to find victims. These aren't drones or tiny robots that look like bugs . . . they're ACTUAL COCKROACHES! The scientists attach a tiny circuit board to the roach, which allows them to control it with wireless signals. And the cockroach receives the signals through its antennae. One of the scientists said controlling the roach was, quote, "similar to riding a horse."
