Ornithopter what? Artificial butterfly flight!

by Andy Boring, UK Entomology Graduate Student

This is a pretty neat news article that came my way and I thought I would share it. A quick summary is that a group of researchers have made a robotic swallowtail butterfly that flies. The link has a video of the "Ornithopter" in flight and a brief description of what this is all about.
