Mobee Robot Bees to Patrol the Skies of Our Nightmares

 |  |  |  |  |  |  February 16, 2012

Robot bees are the real threat to humanity because they could potentially sting you dead and just fly off to find their next victim. If that happens you can thank the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) for their creation, the Mobee.

These robotic insects can fly and behave autonomously as a colony. They are about the size of a quarter and 2.4 millimeters tall, but they are complex machines made from carbon fiber, Kapton (a plastic film), titanium, brass, ceramic, and adhesive sheets laminated together in a complicated laser-cut design. Oh and like a pop-up book, they can instantly assemble. Are you creeped out yet?

You’ll have to watch the skies more then ever and listen for any buzzing or whizzing nearby. If anything comes near you. Kill it. Just kill it. Better safe than sorry. Maybe we should all wear beekeepers gear.
