Scientists at the multidisciplinary research company Draper are using mind control to make insects power their new miniature drone tech.
The DragonflEye project sets out to create cyborg drones that can be steered by humans. It outfits live dragonflies with ‘backpacks’ that contain a sensor array and a solar power source – and then uses neural networking to control their flight paths.
