RoboBees: Autonomous Flying Microrobots

Drawing inspiration from the biological design of bees, the team at the Wyss Institute is in the process of creating RoboBees, synthetic constructs that might one day take on various tasks within agricultural settings or during emergency response situations. These diminutive robotic imitators are portrayed alongside a U.S. penny for scale, showcasing their compact size. The coin, lying on its edge, emphasizes how the meticulously engineered RoboBees, with their translucent wings and spindly limbs, loom only slightly larger than a cent—a testament to their extraordinary miniaturization and intricate design.
