If you liked the Bluetooth car from Sony Ericsson, you'd like this idea too: a mini-helicopter controlled via Bluetooth. The Seiko Epson Corporation has developed the uFR ("Micro Flying Robot"), the world's smallest flying prototype microrobot.
Epson developed the FR to demonstrate the micromechatronics technology that it has cultivated in-house over the years and to explore the possibilities for microrobots and the development of component technology applications. The company will display its latest offering at the 2003 International Robot Exhibition, which will be held at Tokyo Big Sight on 19-22 November 2003.
In April of this year Epson developed Monsieur II-P, a prototype microrobot that operates on an ultra-thin, ultrasonic motor and a power-saving Bluetooth module that allows multiple units to be remote-controlled simultaneously.
