Robotic Bees to Step in For Extinct Ones
This one is depressing because it isn’t out of the realm of possibility. In fact, there’s already talks about robotic bees and/or drone pollinators stepping in to help or even replace real bees as they face rapidly dwindling numbers.
In Detroit: Become Human’s grim timeline, bees only exist in captivity and are completely extinct in the wild (EW). Colony Collapse Disorder, a real-life phenomenon that is currently plaguing bees, occurs when worker bees abandon the colony leaving all the others to fend for themselves and likely die.
We’re still learning about why CCD occurs, and how to counter it properly, but in Detroit: Become Human, our efforts have clearly failed. In this universe, they confirmed our suspicions that pesticides are the problem and CyberTech, the company behind the androids we all know and love from the game, are working on robotic bees to replace them, while other companies are still working to try and revive the organic bee population.
