Also, if they make one small enough for a paramecium, then our privacy will really be in big trouble

Now, if they could also include a small backpack with that, they could carry their very own People repellent LOL

it is amazing how small electronics can get... Why put a tracking collar on a ant when they barely don't go anywhere?

Read the article -- ants do travel significant distances when scouting for new colony locations. The researchers were investigating whether ants choose those locations by comparing (going back to previous sites) or on some "absolute" scale.
You mean ants do travel for miles??
Barely don't go anywhere?

Anyways, this video of a cast of a an ants nest is impressive


Wow.. It was sad that their city was filled, but the structural complex it stunning...
