Could Robot Bees Help Save Our Crops?

Could Robot Bees Help Save Our Crops?

RoboBees were created to respond to a problem so alarming that President Obama created the Pollinator Health Task Force and an action plan for the Departments of Defense, Transportation, and Interior. Sound more like sci-fi than an ally of the food movement? It's a bit of both. Just about everyone agrees that saving honeybee populations is vastly preferable to using RoboBees to pollinate out plants, but they can act as a "stop-gap measure" in response to Colony Collapse Disorder.
