The Microbots are coming

Remember that scene in Minority Report where an army of spider-like bots go in search of Tom Cruise’s character…. well it seems these microbots are on their way

Remember that scene in Minority Report where an army of spider-like bots go in search of Tom Cruise’s character…. well it seems these microbots may not be too far off.

A $38 million project has seen BAE systems and the US Army Research Laboratory join forces to serve up the bio inspired microbots.
“Minority Report was probably one of the inspirations for this project,” said William Devine of BAE Systems, the major partner behind Micro Autonomous Systems and Technology (MAST) Collaborative Technology Alliance. “We’ve been showing the movie to our researchers to inspire them.”
According to Devine, the development of these microbots are already well underway and the company expects them to be ready for customised projects in 12 to 18 months.
