The world's first winged robot has been released by WowWee. It's a remote control dragonfly. It appears relatively difficult to fly.

Implications - The WowWee dragon fly will have you occupied for hours trying to gain full control of this wild winged robot. This mechanical creature goes by the name of FlyTech Dragonfly and is taking over all the airspace. Unlike other high-flying toys, there's no propellers or stationary wings for gliding, this robo-insect actually has flapping wings that move up and down to give it lift off. Once you get a full handle of the controls you can chase around all the birds in your neighborhood and claim the title of king of the skies.
