Race on to build first robot insect

Abstract:
By 2004 the world's densest computer - 400 of them could fit on the surface of a grain of salt - could be powering the first walking silicon chip, with legs that move like a Mexican wave. If that works, the next step could be a robot insect the size of a housefly.
