Includes camera. size same as ants being tracked. can be used
for internal ant hill surveillance, taking a message to the
queen or poison if you are determined to get rid of them.
Later versions will carry miniature weapons for micro warfare.
Military uses can be to cut important electric wires,
to get into
tunnels and rooms where kidnappers are staying, and to insert
Ritalin into the enemy's soup just as they are winding up their
troops to charge while yelling a war cry.

||Are you sure you don't mean Ricin ?
||Building ant-sized robots is somewhat beyond your current technology. Creating humans with the mental capacity of an ant is, however, Baked; Justin Bieber fans are Widely Known To Exist.
||//taking a message to the queen
||What sort of message does one wish to send to her
Ladyship? Before commencing construction of your
tracking robot you might need to master ant
||I myself just returned to my office after the holidays only
to that find ants have literally beaten a path [link] in the
carpet from my rubbish bin to the crack in the wall where
they've made ingress. The highly visible pathway makes
tracking robots superfluous.
||I'm forsaking communication and going directly to gifting
the queen a mixture of powdered almond soaked in borax
as my holiday greeting. Once that has delivered the
crack shall be filled with powdered diatomaceous earth
to foil her inevitable counter-attack.
||Haha put a match head in a tube of the striking material and see if it get lodged in a crack and see if the ant can strike the match.
||Presumably the message would read "
salutation I am a male ant in Nigeria, and our
Queen has died, leaving 100,000 drone ants in
an anthill inside a bank. If
you send 2000 of your drone ants, I will send
them to you."
