I see what you're saying, but I don't really feel that killing a bug and manipulating it are the same thing.
yeah, sure, we kill bugs everyday, they are annoying and all, or even fun to kill if your into that. But i think manipulating them... is just a little... strange to be getting enjoyment from. at some point, you'd have to feel bad for the fly you pulled the wings off, or the ants you torment but leave alive, or the cockroach you bend to your own will. While i don't think this is going to cause any psychopath problems or anything i don't really see the fun of it, and it could lead to darker types of research down the track for scientists. The perception of this is "i can control a living thing with a remote" - that same logic can be applied in some sick ways.
From a science view, there's a mountain of stuff to learn from it though.
