(Washington, DC) Life imitating art imitating life was the general consensus among visitors to the White House Friday when word leaked of the discovery of a cyborg cockroach near the West Wing.
The creation of remote-contolled cockroaches in Tokyo was described in a January 27, 1997 Time article. Later that same year, the motion picture The Fifth Element featured one equipped with a camera.
Other animals turned into steerable robots include rats and pigeons.
"The discovery of the roboroach before it reached my office shows the dedication of my Secret Service," said President Bush.
"Our enemies aren't dumb. They will continue to use whatever method they can to bully us, but we will not stand down. I will never back off."
