WATCH: Robotic Insect Flies Like The Real Thing

WATCH: Robotic Insect Flies Like The Real Thing | Technologies | Scoop.it

 

A robot as small as a housefly has managed the delicate task of flying and hovering the way the actual insects do.

 

“This is a major engineering breakthrough, 15 years in the making,” says electrical engineer Ronald Fearing, who works on robotic flies at the University of California, Berkeley. The device uses layers of ultrathin materials that can make its wings flap 120 times a second, which is on a par with a housefly's flapping rate.

 

This “required tremendous innovation in design and fabrication techniques”, he adds.

Bearing in mind that we live on a planet spinning in space - no one really knows WHERE. And that no one knows WHO created (or genetically-engineered) real insects, like wasps and bees that carry potentially poisonous "missiles" that can be fatal to human beings...Maybe certain insects that already exist were created (or genetically-engineered) in the same way (and for a specific purpose) by another "advanced intelligence?"

Karl Delandsheere's insight:

But this one's a bit scarry actually, though it shows again that real danger in weapons (fire and non-fire) are just tools and aren't the real problem.

 

That being said, I'm against the idea that everyone can have a weapon. It's just insanely dangerous.
