"Scientists at Harvard have perfected a new method for mass-manufacturing tiny 'micro robots', starting with the Mobee, a robotic bee that's no bigger than a one cent coin. The scientists say 'dozens' of bees — which also go by the disconcertingly cute name of Mobee — will fit on a single sheet, making the production of thousands seem frighteningly easy, and that the breakthrough could lead to rapid advancement in Harvard’s 'RoboBees' project.
Here, teams of 'co-ordinated agile robotic insects' could be used for tasks such as examining weather patterns, monitoring traffic and more worryingly, surveillance."
Watch out, the Monolithic Bees are coming to get us
