Robot, looks like a fairy, glows and is able to fly with lights

Weighing just 1.2 milligrams, scientists created a new angel robot that was baptized in the name of a fairy (angel in Spanish). This new prototype, which is controlled by light, is able to rise into the air to help pollination Tampere University reported in a statement.

“The join It can be powered and controlled by a light source, such as a laser beam or LED.

“This will have a huge impact on agriculture globally, as the loss of pollinators due to global warming poses a serious threat to biodiversity and food production,” Zeng said.

“It sounds like science fiction, but the proof-of-concept experiments involved in our research show that Robot What we have developed provides an important step towards realistic applications suitable for artificial pollination.”

Challenges before scientists

After testing them in wind tunnels and under laser light, Zeng and his colleagues envisioned millions of artificial ‘seeds’ carrying pollen in the wind, with the light guiding them towards trees that needed to be pollinated Is. However, more work needs to be done before this can happen.

Researchers are looking for ways to control these lands robots fairy. The project is scheduled to continue its investigation until August 2026.
