Robotic bat wing gives insight into the mechanics of bat flight
Other animals that can fly, like birds, have bodies that have been built around flight for a long, long time. Bats are the only truly flying mammals, and are basically rats with long skin-made wings. The mechanics of bat flight are very different that that of birds, so in order to truly understand how bats fly, researchers built a robotic bat wing, which should come in handy for robot vampires of the future.
