Digital Insects by akiestar Digital Insects by akiestar
You never know where technology can take us.

In a world where everything is fast becoming digital, where technology becomes part and parcel of our everyday lives, would even the smallest creatures of nature become technological as well?

I remember an episode of Arrow where one of the antagonists controlled robotic bees. We are nowhere near there for sure, but what if we do get there?

While we ponder on how technology evolves, for now, we must deal with the here and the now. That means, instead of robotic bees, we have little mini (or micro?) drones like this one, flying through the air.

I agree.
Well, everything can be used in a good or bad way...

But, generally speaking, I rather trust in an advanced technology, especially now, when humans live much longer and in their old age (or with some big health problems) really need any help! Personally I have very nice experience with Paro - Japanese therapeutic robot (in a form of very cute seal calf)...

By the way - your "micro" drone looks nice! Does it carry camera or something...?

I completely agree. I do think that technology as a whole is beneficial for humankind and we should be in a position where we can trust it. I don't deny that it has done a lot of good for us.

At the same time though, it's always good to look at technology with a healthy dose of skepticism as well, and to be wary of it if and when required. Remember, the technology used to build the world can also be the very same technology set out to destroy it. ;)

As for the drone, it is not mine. :P In fact, I took this photo back in 2013. No camera mounted though.
