Is this a mosquito?

Nope! It's a mockup of an insect spy drone that will probably be real...eventually.

Such a device could be controlled from a great distance and is equipped with a camera, microphone. It could land on you and then use it's needle to take a DNA sample with the pain of a mosquito bite. Or it could inject a micro RFID tracking device under your skin.

It could land on you and stay, so that you take it with you into your home. Or it could fly into a bulding thru a window. 

There are well-funded research projects working on such devices with such capabilities.

The device pictured isn't real, but only a CGI mock up [http://www.photosfan.com/insects/]

All I have to say is that is truly scary.
