We're all familliar with different robot archetypes.

  • The RoboSoldiers who destroyed earth's military.
  • The Enslavenators, who cruelly mete out discipline to the human slaves in the outer space diamond mines.
  • And the dreaded Mind-Flayers, who invade our thoughts with their steel, mental talons and convince us the robot invasion never happened, and we're not mining diamonds in outer space.

But get ready for the fly. Developed by Harvard and DARPA (traitors, both), this tiny, unspeakably evil fellow weighs 60-milligrams, sports a three-centimeter wingspan, and has been modeled on the movement of a real fly.

How, exactly, this tiny fly will be used to enslave humans remains to be seen, but our speculation is, the mechanical fly will annoy us on the beach.

Plus, I heard it's un-swatable.
