They could be used to spy, but also to locate people inside earthquake-crumpled buildings and detect hazardous chemical leaks.

The smaller, the better.

Besides the hummingbird, engineers in the growing unmanned aircraft industry are working on drones that look lik

I used to be involved in some of this R&D. Specifically "Energy Harvesting for Small Air Vehicles" on an SBIR contract funded by the AFRL. Here is a concept video from a coupke years ago. Neat stuff!
