Pubudu, you're welcome. I wrote a previous article on RoboBee: the link is given in the Related posts list at the end of this article. That prior article states that the RoboBee is currently powered and communicated with via its tether. We also state that this is a prototype, and the next step will be to make it un-tethered.

I am absolutely amazed at the rapid pace of this technology.  The devices themselves plus the ability to control and maneuver seem to improve every time I read a report.  It's also becoming apparent there are more and more research facilities involved with development.    You Ann have indicated over the recent months uses that make the developments relevant and newsworthy.  Great post.  I really appreciate you keeping us up to date.

It nice to hear that, Debera can you please share some video of mind controlled robots.

Ann thanks for the links,

I thought that it also have a remote controller to control that. But in the video shows it with the wires. If so what is the application of this.

Pubudu, I think you're asking if RoboBee weighs 80 mg including its camera and comm system, correct? It does seem insanely lightweight, but that's what the team's video and accompanying text posted here:

William, what an interesting and creative idea. You come up with many of those, I've noticed. I especially like the non-military uses people are thinking up for flying robots.

taimoortariq, I agree that flying robots are tough to design properly. Robots that must swim are probably at least as tough to design, for somewhat different reasons, as commenters have pointed out in discussions on our nautical robot articles and slideshows.

Mind controlled Robot is the new technology that is comming up .The question is how it can work ? people were asked to wear a cap consisting of 64 sensors and think they have to move towards right, left or straight thoughts that triggered neuons were captured and programmed in the robot in this way in future robots will be moving just with mind control other than moving your hands, body and so on .

I have heard that some researchers of Stanfford University have developed a Robot that jump and glides like a fish . Spring made of carbon fibres are created that are used during take off .This robot cant jump as high as other flying robots but its jump can cover a large horizontal distance . Initially it was created as an unmanned robot but there are certain issues which  it is facing in its autonomy .

No doubt this is an excellent article, As we know technology is expanding at a very rapid rate robots  are becomming common .Initially work was done on robotic technology on a very low level but now researchers and students of engineering universities are taking too much interest in robotic development . Nodoubt Robotic bee  and Bionic opter is an example of human creativity i really liked the idea and this shows where human minds can go in terms of development .
