BionicOpter Dragonfly Drone Flutters About, Blows Minds

BionicOpter Dragonfly Drone Flutters About, Blows Minds | Aerospace Innovation & Technology | Scoop.it

"After crafting a machine last year that soared around like a herring gull, now the company [Festo] has created BionicOpter. The 17.3-inch long dragonfly drone can flutter through the air in any direction, and even hover, just like its biological inspiration. Its four carbon fiber and foil wings beat up to 20 times per-second, propelling it through the air as if it were swimming rather than flying."

Robotic Bat Wing Mimics a 'Spectacular Flyer'

Robotic Bat Wing Mimics a 'Spectacular Flyer' | Aerospace Innovation & Technology | Scoop.it

"Researcher Joseph Bahlman, a graduate student at Brown University, developed the robotic bat wing depicted in this video to help scientists better understand the workings of bat flight. "Bats are just really amazing, spectacular flyers," says Bahlman, a National Science Foundation graduate research fellow. "Their wings are extremely dynamic, so much more dynamic than birds or insects. If you look at the wings of a bat, they're just like our hands, they have all these joints that let their wings adapt into lots of different shapes, giving them a tremendous range of aerodynamic forces and maneuverabilities. They fly much better than anything we've engineered. I would love to figure out how that works and then duplicate it."
