Robotic bees are almost real

Robotic Bees that uses soft, artificial muscles build by researcher in Harvard. The robot looks pretty durable, it can crash-land or even collide with other ‘bees’ without getting destroyed.

The soft actuators can be easily assembled and replaced in these small scale robots. A two-wing model could takeoff from the ground but had no additional control. The great stability is achieved using a “bee” model with four actuators, for a total of 8 wings per robot.

The technology still isn’t very efficient compared to “propelled” robots  but this research open the way for a future  of “insect inspired” robots.

Potential uses includes  search-and-rescue missions, agriculture , area monitoring and ever missions to Mars
