Lecture Details

Thanks to research by Professor Robert Wood and members of the Harvard Microrobotics Laboratory, micro-aerial vehicles like this one, based on the anatomy of a fly, may one day go where humans can not. Seen here, a carbon-fiber wing, 15 millimeters long, whips forward and back 110 times per second, able to propel the fly upward. Future models could be used to detect signs of life in a disaster zone or explore hazardous environments.
