The terrifying promise of robot bugs

When I read the title of the webpage that led me to this video, several fast fleeting images came across my mind from those sci-fi hit movies like MINORITY REPORT, the MATRIX trilogy, and the TERMINATOR franchise.

Considering the advances of science in nano-technologies and artificial intelligence, maybe we are slowly but surely getting closer to some doomsday moment when our intellect’s creations will outwit us and destroy us all, and when no I-Robot movie character like Will Smith’s shall be around in a timely manner to save our sorry arses!

See the YouTube video!

Imitating nature to build a better (or possibly more terrifying) future. We’ve been trying to build flapping-wing robots for hundreds of years. And now, ornithopters are finally being developed, and may be used mostly for military purposes.
