Insect 2.0?

The next step in insect evolution?  Metalosis Maligna crossing the species barrier?  Or just some unusual objet d’art?  The Insect Lab, run by Mike Libby, merges nature with technology to create butterflies with LEDs, beetles with sprockets, and spiders with capacitors.  While the items are a bit pricy, they will no doubt prove to be an unique conversation piece.
