VIDEO: Bionic Remote-Controlled Cockroach

Everybody can finally relax... Forget finding the cure for cancer, BEHOLD the remote controlled cockroach...! Sure the cockroach can survive a nuclear fall-out, but as you can see from the video below it CANNOT beat good 'ol technology... 
By hacking a toy's remote-control mechanism into a cockroach's nervous system you can control the little bug to turn right or left with a click of a button. 
By modifying the HEXBug toy “Inchworm” circuitry to deliver pulses, we stimulated the antenna nerves of the discoid cockroach to “trick” the cockroach into turning upon command. Stay tuned! as we make the preparation easier, more reliable, and lighter! 

check out video of the poor little cockroach below...
