    "If the bee disappears from the surface of the earth, man would have no more than four years to live" - Albert Einstein. Not if I can help it! Let's just build our own pollination drones. This little mechanical bee collects pollen through static hair structures on its back unit, and feeds the pollen dust into the reactor where it is transformed into honey. Most of the honey is stored in the honeycomb structures adjacent to the reactor. In the middle section, a small portion of the produced honey gets fueled into the engine, responsible for the power alimentation of the mechanical parts such as the wings and the drones legs. The rest of the honey is directed to the front unit of the drone, into the brain structure, where all coordination and communication happens. Let the humming begin! CGI Project for self-promotion.
