Insect robot. Computer artwork of a MEM (microelectromechanical) robot based on the design of a wasp or bee. Other MEM robots are seen in the background as part of a swarm. This future technology could be used as a type of pest control, where these MEM robots are programmed to hunt insect pests. This would avoid the need for harmful chemicals, or the possible negative long- term effects of biological controls.
