Robotic Bat

nc-state-robo-batNC State has been working on a new MAV or micro-aerial vehicle  project, a robotic bat.

Using a shape-memory metal alloy for the joints and powerful muscle wires, they hope to emulate a real bat as closely as possible.

They hope to better understand flapping flight and also create a surveillance tool that would scare the neighbors.
