NASA and a team of researchers developed the drone, which is made from material that contains fibers fungi and cloned wasp saliva.

Drone looks like a box out from under the eggs with 4 propellers, but at the same time, according to developers, it can fly in ecologically sensitive areas, leaving no trace.

Developer NASA Lynn Rothschild, who led a group of students from Stanford, Spelman and Brown, said that the drone may disappear completely when boarding a stream or puddle. She explained that her interest was caused by the drones working on environmentally sensitive areas in a research team studying the Earth by NASA. She noted that periodically heard as drones are lost - such as coral reefs or other environmentally sensitive areas. Thus, it would be wise if the drones were biodegradable.

Gribopodobnaya substance of the chassis drone - the substance may be a new plastic that is unlike it can decompose rapidly. Cellulose command raised to cover its "mushroom" housing unit, then the sheets were applied on top of the proteins derived from the saliva axes - repellent liquid which insects socket cover. Scheme printed from ink made of silver nanoparticles to make the UAV so biodegradable as possible.

However, there are some details that could not be replaced by biological, said team member Raman Neelakanta from Stanford University. During the first flight to the competition International genetically Engineered Machine in Boston team used a standard battery, motor and propellers. Nevertheless, the team is working on the creation of other biological parts and studying the construction of the sensor modified E. coli bacteria - bacteria that most commonly found in the intestines of humans and animals. The team claims that the drone can be sent to the region from which further can not wait for his return ago - forest fires, nuclear accidents.
