Robotic Bee Drones Could Be The Future Of Agriculture

“This robotic bee drone prototype gives bees a hand in pollinating flowers and could be a solution to the dwindling bee population. […] Part-awareness rising project, part-potential solution to a very real problem, Plan Bee is a self sustainable drone that stimulates the growth of plants by cross-pollination. The drone sucks pollen through tiny holes located underneath and then pushes it back out through the vents on top. As the drone flies over the field, the pollen will fall on the flowers nearby. The device is also equipped with a UV camera to locate the flowers.”
