Found this. Thought all should know. The insect drones are getting smaller and more life-like. Many uses come to mind.

Insect-sized surveillance drones could be quite dangerous seeing as how they will be virtually undetectable and indistinguishable from real life insects.





Here's another one. The picture below is credited to this link.

You're partially correct. This version is from the 1970's and sits on display at the Spy Museum at Langley, Va these days:

If that was what they called a prototype over 30 years ago, I can only imagine what they actually have in the classified tool box these days. The top of the line models are probably no larger than a fruit fly.

Scary stuff If you ask me.
Is it a fly or am I being watched by the military. Think about that next time you see one.

Thanks for the replies and thanks to Wrabbit2000 and Uncinus for the incredible pic and videos. Here's one more pic of a real dragonfly (I think):




There was some odd behavior with this one and these days I generally have radio controlled bats on my mind. The Pic that Wrabbit2000 posted from years ago is not really so much different from the real thing.

And we call people who always feel like they are being watched... "crazy".

Wow, this is enough to make a paranoid person more paranoid


It gives the saying "Fly on the wall" a whole new meaning.

I was kind of hoping someone would take a good look at the powder blue dragonfly that I was able to personally capture and photograph. It 'visited' several days in a row in a place where there are no rivers, streams, water etc. and seemed happy to sit still for a photo session. Looked like wires in the back of the body. The only thing that threw me was its' agility in the air. Have searched for bio-robo but have been hit by a veil of secrecy. In other words, take the elements, the wings, that can't be duplicated and set the micro-chips within the real thing. Instead of a human being, as portrayed in movies, with computerized attributes, why not a fly with the same or a dragonfly? This would give the best of both worlds.
