Insect-inspired flying robot

I remember from my biology class that a big factor into how animals and insects are the sizes of their bodies and what they need flying for. I wonder what these drones are for if they're looking into mimicking insect flight.

Maybe they're making smaller robots? If insects and bees keep dying, we'll need small robots to pollinate stuff.

It's just a prototype so it may be for educational purposes. I'm actually not surprised that they chose the insect design as it is realy one of the most interesting designs in nature.
