Tiny Flying Robots

from the buzzing-all-over-the-place dept

Straight out of various science fiction stories we now have tiny flying robots that I’m sure various security agencies are interested in after having problems with earlier flying spy machines designed to look like dragonflies. Unfortunately, this flying robot wouldn’t be all that useful either, as they couldn’t figure out how to add a power supply… That’s right, it can fly, but it’s tethered to the battery that remains firmly grounded. Creators Seiko Epson hope to include a lightweight battery that will free the flying robot to buzz around on its own.
