$2 million mini-robot : The Hummingbird

The hummingbird has been developed by a Japanese designer, Hiroshi Liu, and it can mimic the movements of a real bird. It has four wings powered by a small motor which can move them up to 30 times per second. It is 10 cm long and weighs just 2.6 g, coming closely to the dimensions of a real bird.

The robo-hummingbird cost $2 million but the price can increase by 2011 because Hiroshi Liu plans on adding a micro camera to the bird.
