Was it designed? The locust's Motion sensitive neurons.That prevent collision in the swarm.

Locusts migrate in swarms as thick as 80 million locusts per square kilometer. Yet they avoid colliding with one another. What is their secret? 

Behind each of a locust is two compound eyes is a motion-sensitive neuron called the lobula giant movement detector (LGMD). When a collision appears imminent, these neurons send messages to the wings and leg, prompting the locust to act quickly. Infact, its reaction is five times faster than the blink of an eye.

Inspired by the locust's eyes and neutrons, scientist have developed a computerized system that allows a mobile robot to detect and avoid approaching objects, without the need for complicated radar or infrared detectors. Researchers are applying this technology to vehicles, giving them a fast and accurate warning system that could reduce collisions and accident on the road. There is so much to learn from simple insect like locust just have the scientist discovered. 

What do you think? Did the locust's Motion-sensitive neurons come about by evolution? Or were they designed by The Creator.
