High-tech bird watching for shapeshifting airplane wings

An international team of engineers and biologists will gain unprecedented insights into how birds fly so efficiently and then turn that knowledge to building unmanned aircraft with shapeshifting wings. These planes should be lighter, faster and dramatically more maneuverable than today’s stiff-winged aircraft.|Medium Read
