While most people tend to absolutely hate mosquitos, you'd probably be lying to yourself if you said that these tiny flying robotic insects created by Harvard University aren't quite incredible.
No on likes being bitten or bothered by tiny hovering bugs, but if you were to take a closer look at their delicate frames you'd be blown away. That's because although there are millions of mosquitos and gnats hovering around the streets every day, their intricate bodies and the organic mechanisms that allow them to function and fly are works of evolutionary art.
It appears that developers at Harvard University have created the closest thing to a man made mosquito with these flying robotic insects. Weighing 80 milligrams with wings that beat 120 times per second, we're sure to be seeing more creations like this in the habitats of the future.
