BionicOpter Robot: Smart Dragonfly Robot
BionicOpter Robot is 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. Actually piloting the robo-bug is achieved through a smartphone app, but an on-board ARM-based micro-controller makes small adjustments to ensure stability during flight. There are a few important pieces of information we don't have just yet.
