    The robot, a similar size to a real hummingbird, is equipped with a micro
    motor and four wings that can flap 30 times per second, said Hiroshi Liu, the
    researcher at Chiba University east of Tokyo.

    It is controlled with an infrared sensor and can turn up, down, right or left.

    The robot, which weighs 2.6 grams (0.09 ounces), can fly in a figure of eight
    more stably than a helicopter with rotor blades, said Liu, 46, who specialises
    in developing robots based on living creatures.

    "The next step is to make it hover to stay at one point in mid-air," Liu said,
    adding that he also plans to equip it with a micro camera by March 2011.

    The robot, whose development cost has topped 200 million yen (2.1 million
    dollars), may be used to help rescue people trapped in destroyed buildings,
    search for criminals or even operate as a probe vehicle on Mars, he said.

    "First, we need to learn about effective mechanism from natural life forms,
    but we want to develop something to go beyond nature eventually," Liu said.​

    I'll say it another MILLIONS TIMES!
    Until we (Black people)take the lead like the Japenese did in Science and Technology,
    as our ancestors did in the past, all the Religions, all the riots, all the marches,
    Ain't going to do a **** thing for us, unless we pick up the ball in Science
    and Technology, and make a touchdown w/ it!
    T.Y. for this great post!

    EXACTLY, EXACTLY EXACTLY!!!!!

    I BEEN SAYING THAT FOR YEARS ON DEAF EARS!

    THE JAPANESE WAS CRUSHED AND BASICALLY DONE AFTER THE 2 ATOMIC BOMBS DROPPED ON THEM DURING WORLD WAR 2. BUT WHAT DID THEY DO, THEY CHARGE IT TO THE GAME AND AND WENT TO THE 3 PILLARS OF GLOBAL SOCIETY(SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY AND BUSINESS) AFTER 40 YEARS(1945-1985) NOT ONLY DID THEY REBUILD BUT THEY WAS THE LEADERS IN THESE FIELD.

    My brother your post REALLY made my DAY!
    So many times I have said the same thing and it has fallen on deaf ears.
    Which is why I am very TIRED of talking and going over the same tactics
    That may put a band aid on the problems, but never heals it's wounds.
    Until we get back to scientfic study to solve our problems
    As our ancestors did, we will NEVER solve our problems
    And will continue beating the same dead horse for another century
    Brother , PLEASE don't give up, because we need MILLIONS of our people to think
    As you do, because when we do, the solutions to our problems will be answered
    Beacsue w/o a scientfic based foudation to stand on--
    All the money in the world is not going to solve our problems
    Beacuse it is science that made America a world power
    Not Politics , not ecomics BUT scinece
    The Japenese KNOW this and acted upon it, all we need to do is the same.
    HOTEP!

    i hate to see black people kiss butte....

    um, you ever hear of something called the marshall plan? no?
    the asian and european countries were rebuilt by the US after WWII.
    these countries often have free health care and higher education. you got that?
    we also provided military security for them all. that's where your reparations went.

    it makes me sick to see so called hip negroes kissing up to asian behind.
    get a grip. show some pride.

    geez.

    WTF???:SuN049:


    Get a grip?

    I don't bet , but I bet-- you have something made in your house
    by Japan or another ASIAN country, mainly the Computer you using now!
    Japan and other country's are dominating Science and Technology right now
    how is that kissing butt , acknowledging that cold hard fact.
    And you sitting up here talking about the Marshall plan,

    and how WE helped to provide sercurity for Japan;
    while Black people were still being LYNCED IN AMERICA!

    Knee- Grow Pleeease
    Black Soldiers were still treated like second class people, not even citizens in WW2
    Matter of fact, Nazi war criminals were treated better then they were.
    And I stand by my statement, we NEED to follow pursuit
    in how to deal w/ those who we perceive to be our enemies.
    First you make a thread about your disdain of White people
    and now you all on his side talking about --"WE"; which is it brother???
    You talking about show some pride, smdh...
    How are you SHOWING pride by kissing the butt
    of American imperialism by the statement you made???
