According to a December 9th article at World Science, your average honey bee can be taught to recognize a human face for up to two days. That’s better than some people I know!
The article is rather inspecific and quotes dates in the future (we assume they meant December 15th, 2004, but who can be sure?), so it’s still a little suspicious. However, if true, I can think of literally hundreds of applications for this particular discovery.
Imagine, the perfect home security system which causes anaphylaxis to anyone they don’t recognize.
What an incredible and inexpensive alternative this could be for the costly Biometric Analyzers used at large public events!
How about a new Where’s Waldo? lawn game, with a mail-in certificate for your child’s very first set of bees? Great for cookouts and Family Gatherings!
And maybe they could find Bin Laden.
