So most of us would be all like “yippee” over the fact that bee populations have been steadily declining. Hooray! No more pretending to ignore them so they just leave us alone! No more running like a little girl! But see, losing bees could be bad… very bad. Pollination is crucial for the survival of all of our yummy crops. So these robotic bees might not only be less scary to those who happen to fall into shock if they’re stung, but they could also save our farms, oh and possibly victims of natural disasters.
That’s right, someday down the line, these little buggers are bound to save your life if you, say, get stuck in the rubble of an earthquake or something equally devastating. So yay for that!
