Butterfly Robots from Japan

The DelFly micro robots are something we missed to report about. The animal-like creatures weight just about 3 grams and fly like butterflies through the air. Incredible small and versatile creatures, that are also equipped with a camera, supporting live-video transmission. Yes, live-video transmission at this scale - it sounds unbelievable, but it is true! This kind of robots are called Ornithopter, because it is a winged system, that can fly in the air.

Researcher from Japan now worked on this technology and developed even a smaller and lighter model, with a weight of 0.39 grams! The video here shows next important enhancement, because they figured out the perfect motion for the robot to move forward in the air. If you think of cutting edge robotic design, than start here!
