Why didn't I meet the word in the title until now? Janine Benyus is quoted at Wikipedia:

Our planet-mates (plants, animals and microbes) have been patiently perfecting their wares for more than 3.8 billion years ... turning rock and sea into a life-friendly home. What better models could there be?
Anyway, another entry in the occasional series on robots based on animals, with the Delfly, a dragonfly with a camera.

There's a 5cm model, the Delfly Micro, but the videos for it aren't so good.

It's cool, but nature is so much better - it's the future, and will bury us.
