This paper reports the first direct control of insect flight by manipulating the wing motion via microprobes and electronics introduced through the Early Metamorphosis Insertion Technology (EMIT). EMIT is a novel hybrid biology pathway for autonomous centimeter-scale robots that forms intimate electronic-tissue interfaces by placing electronics in the pupal stage of insect metamorphosis. Our new technology may enable insect cyborgs by realizing a reliable control interface between inserted microsystems and insect physiology. The design rules on the flexibility of the inserted microsystem and the investigation towards tissue- microprobe biological and electrical compatibility are also presented.
