Hummingbird robot developed by Japanese Scientist

Japanese researchers said Monday they had developed a “hummingbird robot” that can flutter around freely in mid-air with rapid wing movements. The robot, a similar size to a real hummingbird, is equipped with a micro motor and four wings that can flap 30 times per second, said Hiroshi Liu, the researcher at Chiba University east of Tokyo. It is controlled with an infrared sensor and can turn up, down, right or left.
