The horrific worst-case scenario: all bees are gone. What would the world do? Turn to robotic drones according to one Japanese researcher.

The artificial pollinators described in today’s study are manually controlled via a remote control. In the future, the researchers hope to use a combination of AI, GPS, and high-resolution cameras to create completely autonomous machines, Miyako wrote in an email to The Verge. They will then need to be tested on actual farms to see if they work outside the lab.
