        Gross Science | Cockroach Cyborgs

        Learn how to turn a cockroach into a tiny controllable "bugborg," in this episode of Gross Science from NOVA. Why would you want to? It turns out that these nasty pests could turn into life savers in the future. By inserting wires in the cockroaches' antennae and connecting the wires to a backpack containing a battery and computer chip, scientists can control where the cockroach moves. This resource is part of the NOVA: Gross Science Collection.
