Flight of the RoboBee: Tiny hovering robot creates buzz

I used to love science. Now I fear it. They claim this drone is going to be used for GOOD purposes. We all know how that usually turns out don't we?

A robotic fly with a body not much taller than a penny standing on edge has taken to the air, passing its tests with flying colors. The RoboBee, as it's called, is the smallest artificial insect yet flown, according to the team that built it.
