All this has happened before..

Watching some program on the Japanese NHK channel. They wire a moth's brain onto a robot and make it move as it responds to pheromones. They are talking about a flying robot 'controlled' by a fly brain.

I'm sure some of this research may end up being useful -or even very useful (for instance, for disabled people) but, boy, is it creepy.
