Shortly after the University of Tokyo announced it had created remote-controlled cockroaches in 1997, the Hollywood blockbuster film "Fifth Element" depicted such a creature as a tool for spying.

In 1999, University of California at Berkeley scientists implanted 177 electrodes into a cat's brain and were able to descipher what the cat was seeing.

Today, Charter Industrial Applications has announced its creation of roboticized fruit flies. The cybernetic insects are impossible to differentiate by means of the naked eye.

"The technology we were using on our human canditates adapted well to the much simpler brains of our insect cousins," said a spokesman.
