Tiny Flyer Navigates Like Fly

Wow. Just 10 grams and it's got two cameras, a gyro, motor, batteries and a 14" wingspan.
"The 10-gram microflyer, being developed by a team of researchers lead by Dario Floreano at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne, has a 36-centimeter (14-inch) wingspan.

But it could one day be shrunk to insect size and used for search and rescue."
Yeah right. Search and rescue. Nobody would ever develop a fly-sized robot for survelliance.
