robots.net has long reported on insect-like micro air vehicles or MAVs. However, TU Delft's Delfly Micro unveiled yesterday puts most previous insect-inspired robots to shame. Not only does it flap it's wings similar to a real dragonfly, it's also comparable in size. Measuring a mere 10cm from wing-tip to wing-tip it is smaller than some real dragonflies. Best of all, it's equipped with a camera that streams back video to a base station - check out this video and the Delfly site for more information.
