So, the US military want to implant chips into pupating butterflies so they can use them for remote-control surveillance. Okay. This is the same research agency that’s also proposed things like self-healing minefields, mechanical battlefield elephants and direct brain interfaces to battlefield equipment. Oh, and they invented the internet.

(incidentally, DARPA have loads of really interesting projects. It’s a shame that they’re basically all about making new and interesting ways to kill people, because otherwise it sounds like quite a fun place to work)
