World's smallest flying robot

Many achievements have already been made in the process of developing incredible robots. This one could be a winner: it’s the world’s smallest flying robot put together by the Harvard University team. The robotic insect not only is ridiculously tiny, but it also flies! A delicate control system, linked to the wings, permits this coin-sized robot to drift through the air. 12 years of research have been necessary to accomplish such an achievement. The Harvard scientists are now focusing on reproducing perfect flying maneuvers…just like a real bug! Is creating a brain the next objective?
