Using Super Slow Motion to Study the Biomechanics of Flight

HummingBirdDARPA’s hummingbird drone might be terrifying, but it’s pretty remarkable that we’ve been able to create a bot that mimics that kind of agility. Researchers at Stanford armed with high-speed cameras are studying the minutiae of bird flight frame-by-frame to see if we can’t one day make these bots even nimbler. That’s right, super-slow motion […]
