+ - Robotic Fly to Descend on New York

Submitted by DeviceGuru
DeviceGuru (1136715) writes "Get ready, New York! Harvard University's tiny microrobotic fly, hailed by its creators as 'the first robotic fly that is able to generate enough thrust to takeoff,' will be showcased at New York's Museum of Modern Art starting Feb. 24. The life-sized 'Flybot' reportedly has a wingspan of 1.2 inches (3 cm) and weighs a mere 0.002 ounces (60 mg). This project of the Harvard University Microbotics Lab has received funding from DARPA, the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (bless their little hearts), which hopes to gain access to micro-miniature surveillance technologies."
