3D printed flying Microbots


Flying Microbots science fiction sneaking their way into our world. For this, a robotics team at Cornell University has created some small insects flying robots using a 3D printer. Lightweight and quiet, come to stay.

The wings of these cute robo-insects are very thin and light, yet durable. Previously, the manufacturing process of these wings had spent much time and effort applying the method of trial and error. However, rapid prototyping has helped create these wings, allowing replicate the shapes and design of real or virtual insects or create any imaginable form. The best part? are made in a few minutes.
