Mattheus Spartacus writes: "Researchers have taken amazing footage of a bat flying, and are suggesting that the mammals could be inspiration for military designers producing minitaure flying machines. "Next, the researchers aim to study bats' wakes using higher-resolution cameras provided by the US Air Force Office of Scientific Research. That information could help design tiny flying vehicles, such as those being developed for military reconnaissance." Should we expect jet powered spy-bats in the future?"

And would you call these guys a boy band?

That's what the Pentagon wants to do, says New Scientist. By remotely guiding the sharks' movements using a newly designed neural implant, the military hope to transform the animals into stealth spies."
