Default Micro fly organic robots that can spy on you

This is really cool but at the same time terrifying if in the wrong hands. its amazing to think that they can now control flys by firing electic into thier muscles: http://technology.timesonline.co.uk/...SS&attr=797093

"When the team delivered pulses of negative voltage to the brain, the beetles’ wing muscles began beating and the bugs took off. A pulse of positive voltage shut the wings down, stopping flight short, and by rapidly switching between these signals, they controlled the insects’ thrust and lift."

Makes you think wheather thats actually right to do though, and isn't harming the creature.

I'm confused. What's the point of that? You're going to create an army for what? Unless you can hook up a tiny little camera or sound recorder it is pretty much useless. I don't want to bring negative thoughts here, but I don't see how it can be useful.

obviously they would drop the fly out of a B52 or stealth bomber first and then just glide it down to the Kremlin.
