Scientists turning insects into Cyborg Drones by combining miniaturized sensors, navigation, synthetic biology and neurotechnology

The smallest aerial drones mimic insects in many ways, but none can match the efficiency and maneuverability of the dragonfly. Now, engineers at Draper are creating a new kind of hybrid drone by combining miniaturized navigation, synthetic biology and neurotechnology to guide dragonfly insects. The system looks like a backpack …
