The End is Nigh! Device Allows Flies to Aim a Revolver

In a world where we prepare for wars with zombies and our future robot overlords, we have committed the huge mistake of ignoring something like the housefly. Fly Revolver by David Bowen shows just how big of a mistake overlooking flies as future weaponised adversaries can be. The flies live inside an acrylic sphere with a target backdrop. Movements of flies and their interactions are captured by a video camera that then feeds it to control circuits, which eventually end up controlling where the revolver aims.
