Scientists in the US have created a robot the size of a fly that is able to perform the agile manoeuvres of the ubiquitous insects.

This "robo-fly", built from carbon fibre, weighs a fraction of a gram and has super-fast electronic "muscles" to power its wings.
Its Harvard University developers say tiny robots like theirs may eventually be used in rescue operations.
It could, for example, navigate through tiny spaces in collapsed buildings.

I always fancied having a remote control bumble-bee, just for the annoyance potential in a careers office.

Wonder if it can be controlled from RAF Waddington?

Posh buggers.

What's wrong with using a piece of rye grass as a "flying insect" to annoy someone by buzzing your victims ears....
