Do you know what this is?

It's a tiny drone created by Japanese researchers to "help pick up the slack from insect pollinators". 
This is just a photo of the prototype.

I feel so old.

Evidently, the world's bee population is decreasing dramatically to the point one species is endangered.  This match book sized drone is covered in a sticky gel that doesn't dry out.  It would transport pollen among the flowers.

Science is amazing . So sad for the bees tho.  


  1. oh my word. I feel old too lol
    It's my belief they are killing the bees, and us, with pesticides. Random and over spreading pesticides. At least when my idiot neighbors started spraying every three weeks all my fireflies, bees, butterflies died. I miss them.

  2. I totally agree! I only use natural products if any on my tomatoes or flowers.
