Wasp Detective 

No, I don't mean white folks employed by the police department; I mean the buzzing, stinging, injecting-eggs-into-your-skin insect kind. Researchers are currently working to train the buggers to sniff out chemicals released by imperiled crops, which they seem to do orders of magnitude better than robotic sniffers.

A few years down the road, it won't be a German shepherd puppy sniffing your bags in the customs line, but a swarm of nasty stingy bugs. I ca hardly wait.
