“Researchers build miniature flying robots, modeled on Drosophila”
We may not be at fruit fly level yet, but researchers are giving the insects some competition. Today’s issue of Science reports on miniature flying robots that aren’t much bigger than a coin. The power and control are handled externally, but the tiny robots can still perform basic maneuvers, and they have enough lift to spare that they could fly under their own power for a few minutes if the right power storage were developed.
Noting the concept of Moore’s Law, you should be wonderfully afraid.
