Walmart's Robot Bees
Walmart has filed a patent on robot, autonomous bees. These robot bees can be used to autonomously pollinate flowers just like real bees. At least that's the public explanation being rolled out by Walmart's public relations people of why the bees are being developed.
Conspiracy theorists probably believe the real reason is this is the first step in the Mega-Corporation Robot Wars. These robot bees would be just the right tool to randomly disable Amazon delivery drones. Just a couple robot bees "accidentally" sacrificing themselves into the rotor blades of the Amazon drones will be just enough to put a black mark on Amazon's delivery record.
Just the first step.
