Robot-like insects and insect-like robots are the stuff of science fiction and science fact. Often in science fiction, insects are frequently featured as robotic critters. There are many examples in TV, movies, video games, comic books, even on album covers. From Cronos to The Golden Compass, the insect/robot archetype has been used, re-used and re-imagined countless times.
