Japanese Researchers Use Tiny Drone to Pollinate Flower


(CNN)Researchers in Japan have successfully used a tiny drone to pollinate an actual flower, a task usually accomplished by insects and animals.

The remote-controlled drone was equipped with horsehairs coated with a special gel, which the researchers say was crucial to the process.
"This is the world's first demonstration of pollination by an artificial robotic pollinator," said Eijiro Miyako of the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology in Japan, one of the authors of the study, which was published in the journal Chem.

  • Perhaps this will lead to new jobs - drone pilots for all the tiny drones we'll have to build to replace the bees once they're gone.

    Why are they inventing something new for you to deploy against me?
