  • Researchers have developed cyborg cockroaches that pick up sounds with small microphones and the biobots may help rescue survivors in the aftermath of a disaster.
  • North Carolina State University researchers have developed technology that allows cyborg cockroaches, or biobots, to pick up sounds with small microphones and seek out the source of the sound. 
  • The researchers have also developed technology that can be used as an `invisible fence' to keep the biobots in the disaster area.
  • In a collapsed building, sound is the best way to find survivors.
  • The biobots are equipped with electronic backpacks that control the cockroach's movements. 
  • Research team has created two types of customized backpacks using mics.
  • One type of biobot has a single mic that can capture high-resolution sound from any direction to be wirelessly transmitted to first responders.
