You and I have been waiting anxiously, shotgun under the pillow, hiding out in junkyards near the metal crusher so we can crush those metal bastards when the time comes. And still we wait. The tension is thick. But while we’re waiting, take a look at what some artist has done with real insects, inspired by the folks at DARPA.

Presumably this person outfitted these bugs with munitions and such not because they are a raving lunatic, but because they are trying to raise awareness about these government projects. If you hit the link, you’ll find such things as: Scorpions on wheels, beetles with jet wings, bats with missiles mounted on their wings. And on and on.
