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.
