One can imagine all sorts of uses for this little bugger. Seiko Epson Corporation ("Epson")
has developed the mFR (“Micro Flying Robot”), the world’s smallest flying prototype microrobot.

Epson developed the mFR to demonstrate the micromechatronics technology that it has cultivated in-house over the years and to explore the possibilities for microrobots and the development of component technology applications. The company will display its latest offering at the 2003 International Robot Exhibition, which will be held at Tokyo Big Sight on November 19 – 22, 2003.
