Submission + - Multi-purpose wings allow flying robot to walk across rough terrain (robohub.org) 1

Sabine Hauert writes: The Deployable Air Land Exploration Robot (DALER) uses its own wings to crawl and roll over a variety of terrains. Using a self-adjusting structure to transform its wings into rotating arms, the robot is able to flip, rotate and navigate its way around and over obstacles on the ground. Sharing the wings across different modes of locomotion reduces the amount of infrastructure and weight the robot must carry, thus improving flight performance. The ability to adapt to a variety of environments is important in search and rescue operations, where both air and ground searching may be required.

Somebody ought to cross ball point pens with coat hangers so that the pens will multiply instead of disappear.
