Fly on the wall!  The U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is working to develop cyborg insects that carry spy equipment.  To make the insects as inconspicuous as possible, miniaturized brain probes are inserted during the pupa stage.  The idea is the ultra-light implants will naturally integrate into the body of the developing insect.
