+ - Flying Jellyfish Robot->

Submitted by BuzzSkyline
BuzzSkyline (905506) writes "Building flying robots that mimic insects is hard, so researchers from New York University have decided to copy the propulsion of jellyfish instead. It turns out that their flying jellyfish robot is inherently stable. The prototype only weighs 2.1 grams, and lacks the lift to carry a power source, so it relies on wires to provide electricity instead. The researchers hope to increase lift in future iterations, with an eye to creating tiny, autonomous flyers that don't need additional sensors or circuitry to hover and fly stably."
