Solar-Powered Cyborg Giant Cockroaches are Here – What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

From almost the moment humans became a species, they have sought dominance over all other species on the planet. While domestication has been the method in a few cases, extermination – for food or for territory control – is most often the technique used. Both intentional and as a consequence of human expansion, the list of extinct species is a testament to this quest for superiority. There are a few notable cases where dominance has failed – rodents are a prime example, but generally the unconquerable species is from the insect world. From trying to eliminate beetles with cane toads in Australia to the worldwide use of pesticides and genetic modification to eliminate mosquitos, the lesson learned should probably be to pack up and admit defeat. However, in the case of cockroaches, scientists have turned to yet another method of attempted dominance – converting them into solar-powered cyborgs. What could possibly go wrong?
