Engineers Create a Brilliant Bionic Bat

Bio-mimicry has long been one of the engineer’s most vital tools. Nature, after all, displays some of the most adept solutions to modern engineering problems.

Flight has long been an industry that teems with examples of useful bio-mimicry engineering. In the video below, you can see a bat robot that is perhaps the best mechanical representation of the actual creature in human history. Through the use of composite materials and lightweighting, engineers from Festo were able to create this incredibly lifelike machine. Check it out below.
