DASH + Wings

A while back, researchers at the University of Berkeley created a small robot called DASH (Dynamic Autonomous Sprawled Hexapod).
Now they have given DASH wings and run it through a series of interesting tests.

These tests breath new life into an old scientific debate.

The debate is weather wings evolved to let animals glide down from trees or to help animals maneuver up trees or up inclines.
