Mothra's got nothing on this flying bug

WowWee's robot uses wing, not propellers, to fly

The people at WowWee don't waste any time. Just a couple of weeks ago, Crave wrote of an FCC application filed by the toymaker for a remote-controlled "FlyTech Dragonfly."

Now, T3 reports that it has gotten exclusive access to the robotic insect, with photos and YouTube video to prove it. Unlike lesser beings that rely on propellers and such for flight, according to the U.K. magazine, the Dragonfly is "the world's first robot to use brute flapping-power to remain airborne."

So the next time a co-worker buzzes you with one of those RC mini-choppers, imagine what fun it will be to unleash the Dragonfly and squash it like the puny bug that it is.
