The DARPA is working on a strange weapon for enhancing their defense system. They are experimenting on beetle larvae. Electronic controls would be implanted in the bodies of beetle larvae. When they grow up the machines will become a part of their physique and the defense teams will be able to maneuver them by giving stimulation to the wings. Researchers and scientists are now trying to build better robobugs. These bugs can be used for spying, recording voice and transmitting digital images.
Nanobots are a special type of micro robots that have been designed by the DARPA. These robots will stay inside the bodies of soldiers and detect if they have got some sort of a disease or not. If a soldier is affected by some sort of disease then the nanobots will start the primary treatments.
