Harvard scientists have created a tiny, insect-sized robot that is able to flap it's wings eerily similar to a fly. The Robo-fly (bravo in the naming department, scientists), is made from carbon fiber, and weighs under a gram. Its wing flapping ability comes from super-fast electric "muscles," which the Harvard scientists say will allow it to be eventually used in rescue operations. 

Well, not if one-eyed snake robot has anything to say about it, that is.
