I recently received an email describing a new Insect Spy Drone being tested by the government. It looked cool and sounded plausible until one of my friends pointed out this Snopes post that debunks the claim. End of story…right? Wrong! A week later I read about a Harvard team that has developed the first mechanical flying insect. It’s not yet capable to be a spy drone but an important step has been taken. It’s only a matter of time.
It seems that we just can’t forestall
The making of things very small
Like this latest machine
That’s almost unseen
The proverbial ‘fly on the wall’.
