Welcome to the New Brave World!
Robot bees will be better than the real thing says Greenpeace.
A video by GreenPeace:
The video doesn’t cover all aspects of these potential creations.
INSPIRED by the biology of a bee and the insect’s hive behavior …
we aim to push advances in miniature robotics and the design of compact high-energy power sources; spur innovations in ultra-low-power computing and electronic “smart” sensors; and refine coordination algorithms to manage multiple, independent machines.
Potential future uses include search and rescue, surveillance, and environmental monitoring applications – and even taking the place of real bees to pollinate crops.
