Giving new meaning to the term “Pest Control,” a new Kickstarter project will allow you to create a device to control cyborg cockroaches with your mobile phone.
Created by the Michigan-based team at Backyard Brains, the RoboRoach project is billed as “the world’s first commercially available cyborg.” For a $100 pledge to the Kickstarter project, you’ll get a tiny Bluetooth device that you can attach to a cockroach. (For a pledge of $150, you also get 12 cockroaches.) After that, you’ll be able to control the insect’s movements with your smartphone, directing it left or right with a swipe of your finger.
