The US military is developing micro drones, according to RT.com.
Drones come in all shapes and sizes. Some rain hellfire from the sky, others buzz around your ear, masquerading as mosquitos.
Back in 2007 the Telegraph reported the US had been accused of "secretly developing robotic insect spies." Government agencies admitted nothing at the time, but they're not gainsaying now.
Last year Zoologist Richard Bomphrey of Oxford University told the British Daily Mail about his research into how insect wings evolved over 350 million years.
“By learning those lessons, our findings will make it possible to aerodynamically engineer a new breed of surveillance vehicles that, because they are as small as insects and also fly like them, completely blend into their surroundings," he said.
When the Telegraph asked Tom Ehrhard, a retired Air Force colonel and expert on unmanned aerial craft, about the insect spies, he replied, "America can be pretty sneaky."
Yes, yes it is.
So sneaky that they've made a mosquito-size drone that injects poison into people, according to techblog.com.
