Engineers at Harvard have built an insect-sized flying robot that can also swim. One step closer to that drone insect swarm army.
This week on Crave, augment your reality with a demo of Magic Leap, find out exactly how many people Darth Vader has murdered and see why Harvard thinks tiny drones that can fly and swim are the future. It's the Crave show!
A RoboBee the size of a quarter is making waves today. It's not quite ready to start filling in for bee hives around the world, but we're okay with that. We're a little worried about the possibility of these bees turning into angry, killer robo-bees.
On today's show, we discuss how one student is using Oculus Rift and Kinect to 'hack' other people's bodies, 3D-printed birds created to protect real birds, and a Harvard researcher's RoboBee.
Harvard's bee-inspired RoboBee is now the first insect-sized robot that can both fly and swim.
Harvard University's robotics lab designs an origami-inspired method for stamping out large numbers of pop-up flying microrobots.
Bug-sized robots created by Harvard can zip along at a speed of 37 centimetres per second.
Harvard University researchers have conducted the first controlled flight of so-called "RoboBees," which weigh less than a tenth of a gram.
Google CEO Larry Page imagines a tech-driven utopia, robotic bees take flight, and a $325,000 stem cell hamburger is ready to be eaten.
A tiny flying robot the size of a house fly is helping scientists study the dynamics of insect flight.
