Holy Schnikees, Batman.....

In the insanely competitive world of Robotics comes this quote:

Needless to say, the biomimetic borg arms race seems already to have begun. DARPA and Georgia Tech with their puny moth-terminators may rue the day they went up against the US Army/U-Michigan chiropterthopter war bat with its smell scanners and gargoyle mode.

The counterstroke would almost inevitably involve the use of Robocop-style powered assist mechwarrior gear with moths at the controls - again, something already being trialled.

Why, of course that would be the "counterstroke". I mean, that's what popped into my head first time I read that. It's pretty obvious isn't it?
