Now, this is the part where we all say to ourselves: why would anyone want to build robot bees? Well, here you go:
The patent outlines how tiny autonomous “pollination drones” would use sensors to locate crops, transport pollen, and verify which crops have been successfully pollinated.
So it's for farming purposes. Makes sense, I guess.
Still, though... we all know it's only a matter of time before the robot bees turn on their human masters. From Frankenstein to Skynet, sentient creations always turn on their creators. It's like a natural law or something. When it happens, we'll get to experience the chaos of the Bee Revolution, the riots of the Night of the Big Swarms, and the horrific oppression of the Reign of Stingers.
And that will be the end of human liberty. Done in by freakin' robot bees.
