Robotic Bees to Replace Organic Pollinators

Rather than trying to figure out what's killing bees, nature's best pollinators, engineers have been developing the Monolithic Bee, a miniature flying robot intended to eventually take over their task.

Engineers at Harvard's Microrobotics Lab are designing what may be the future of plant pollination -- robotic bees. These RoboBees are about the size of a penny and may eventually be used for surveillance and environmental monitoring.
