    A virtual network of 300,000 Android devices is roaming around an imaginary city, giving researchers at Sandia National Laboratories the chance to see how a wireless network operates in a microcosm. The purpose of the project, called "MegaDroid," is to enhance the security of wireless networks by exposing weaknesses. Sandia National Laboratories announced on Tuesday that it has set up a network of 300,000 Android virtual hand-held computing devices to study large networks of smartphones.

    The project, called "MegaDroid," is expected to result in a software tool that will let other cyber-researchers model similar environments and study the behavior of smartphone networks.
