What do you think of tiny 0.05mm drones (little computer chips with fly like wings that buzz 72x per second ) that can watch you with their tiny eyes(cameras) and even deliver a lethal dose of toxin to any person by flying up their nostril? The US Air Force has used these robots since 1998(research papers started coming out in the early 1990s on how to make artificial houseflies and fly-like wings attached to a tiny computer chip with "legs" and "eyes " attached to it too.).

Do you have some kind of source referencing these "computer chips with fly wings"?

There are robotic houseflies but they don't look anything like a real fly. So, I really hope people don't see a fly in the house and assume they are being watched.

Well...that puts whole new spin to the old saying...oh, to be a fly on the wall.....


Secrets, soon will be a distant memory....

Aliens could already have robotic flies planted on the earth. They could also have remote controlled spiders. Are you sure that spider on the corner of the curtain is really a spider? Have you ever seen it eat anything? What about that fruit fly in the kitchen that drinks spilled coffee but won't eat the fruit? Do you check to see whether every bug is real?

You just had to go open that can of worms...didn't you Ricky....I already have my doubts about Spiders being indigenous to Earth....shame on you...I blame you for incoming nightmares.....


Now, I have to throw flies into the mix.....

Most of the robotic fly articles I've read suggest that these are still in the concept stage, as we are still a little ways from getting them to actually work independent of a tethered power source. (Problems with making a battery small enough, with enough power)

That's not considering that the military might not already have figured out the solution to this problem in secret...Which is certainly possible.

On the other hand, if you look at the flying vehicles built now that are a bit too large to be considered an insect..(such as these videos of Quadcopters)....they are quite impressive.







If some Gov program doesn't already have these things bug sized....then it won't be long before it's a reality!

But..but... now you don't have to worry about the flies pooping on your food. You may have to worry about naked pictures winding up on the world wide Spider Web though

Who says there isnt a flying nanobot.

seems logical to me as electronics evolve smaller and smaller.

If you are going to make claims like this you really need to be able to back them up with some kind of evidence other than theoretical papers.
