LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11)-- Researchers in North Carolina are trying to determine if remote-controlled cockroaches will be the next step in emergency rescue.

Pulse waves, sent by electrodes implanted into the insects, were able to give researchers the ability to control the path of the roaches.

The researchers are now hoping that these roaches will be able to be equipped with tiny microphones and navigate their way through cramped, dark spaces in effort to find survivors in disaster situations.
