Scientific Discovery- Controlling cockroaches with your Phone

Technology is indeed advancing, in the modernised age of ours. Smartphone app for controlling cockroaches.

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.
