Just read this article on Darpa's work on using bugs for war effort. They are planning to make a kind of insect cyborg to use in the army.

Proposed research should investigate innovative approaches that enable revolutionary advances in science, devices or systems. Specifically excluded is research, which primarily results in evolutionary improvement upon existing state-of-the-art.
