Controlling Cockroaches With Your Smartphone

Cockroaches may be considered vermin but one team of scientists
has found a way to keep the pests under control - remote control
that is.
Michigan-based Backyard Brains created an electric backpack that
fits onto a cockroach and makes it turn on command using electric
impulses, and the firm has now begun selling DIY kits meaning
anyone can use the technology at home.
The Roboroach stimulates the creature's antenna and forces it to
turn left and right at the flick of a switch and the backpack links
with a smartphone app that is used as the remote control.
