Robofly in development and gets tiny mechanical wings. Although it's not flying yet, they're hoping it will be airborne by 2004. When it does take flight it'll likely be the smallest autonomous flying robot. The robofly is part of an overall study getting funding of about $2.5 million by the U.S. government's Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency and the Office of Naval Research, called Controlled Biological and Biomimetic Systems. The little critters are expected to cost $10 a pop when they become available!
