Cool idea, they should try a full body stabilizer next time so that the wheight
of the camera is envenly distributed. The insect's head is carrying all the load
and it is not ergonomically fair.

I don't like roaches at all but that looks kind of cruel.

I think there's something like this in the movie The Fifth Element where they send some sort of bug-cam as a spy...

That cam (in the fifth element) was embedded into bio-circuitry (my guess).
This cam is so darn big! and the resolution is so low!
