Robot hummingbird passes flight tests (w/ Video)


www.physorg.com

(PhysOrg.com) -- A prototype robot spy "ornithopter," the Nano-Hummingbird, has successfully completed flight trials in California. Developed by the company AeroVironment Inc., the miniature spybot looks like a hummingbird complete with flapping wings, and is only slightly larger and heavier than most hummingbirds, but smaller than the largest species.

The spybot was developed for the US military's research arm, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). The hummingbird appearance is intended to disguise the bot, although it would look decidedly out of place and would attrac

Look out the window in the morning, sit down with your cup o joe, watch the Hummingbird feeder. You see one of the humming birds staring at you!
It follows you into the house!
Watches you bathe.
You're swatting at it the whole time.
You try to explain to your husband when he gets home from work but he looks at you like you're nuts!

Aww fiddlesticks, I saw this in the paper this morning and was going to post on it but completely forgot!!!!

Good post!

I don't think we're in the realm of Charlie Jade yet (flying beetles that the people in control of the water use to spy on suspects) so I think it's a bit far to be worried about it, I mean you can buy a tiny remote controlled shopper now, and fix a small camera to it, and this can be done by your neighbour to spy on you already.

The gimmick here is the disguise..

Really, it does all that? It's also ok for the kids but not for the government?

I'm not sure what kind of drugs you are on...

BUT I WANT SOME.

One day soon birds will spy on you, house flies will film you, mosquitoes will inject you with heart stopping nano bots.
