Incredible video showing how the Harvard Monolithic Bee, a millimeter-scale flapping wing robotic insect, is produced using Printed Circuit MEMS (PC-MEMS) techniques that is literally folded into action, soldered and ready to deploy.

This video describes the manufacturing process, including pop-up book inspired assembly. This work was funded by the NSF, the Wyss Institute, and the ASEE.
