We’re get­ting closer and closer to the point where we don’t have enough bees in this country to meet pol­li­na­tion demands,” said ento­mol­o­gist Dennis vanEn­gel­storp of the Uni­ver­sity of Mary­land, who led the survey doc­u­menting the declines, according to Wired.

How­ever, recently, sci­en­tists in Har­vard and North­eastern Uni­ver­sity have taken a big step to over­come a polit­ical pol­li­nator crisis.

They have cre­ated a robot the size of a fly with wing designs based on real house­flies. The man­u­fac­ture was inspired by origami, which is able to per­form the agile manoeu­vres of the global insects.

Check out the plan, mech­a­nism, objec­tions, and appli­ca­tions of the hov­ering robot that will change the his­tory of our country.

In 2009, the teams con­sid­ered seri­ously to create a robotic bee colony. Now these teams worked on a swarm of tiny RoboBees– flying-​​bee size robots– that could pol­li­nate flowers and do the job of real bees if needed.
