6. Stanford researchers have developed a PigeonBot drone that looks like, well, a pigeon. The experimental UAV has real feathers and biohybrid morphing wings that helped researchers test out a new way of making drones fly, Digital Trends reports. David Lentink, head of Stanford’s Bio-Inspired Research & Design (BIRD) Lab, said his goal was to create "bird-like aerial robots as a model for studying bird flight." The team and their technology were featured in a newly published research article in Science Robotics, writing that their flight tests demonstrated "that the soft feathered wings morph rapidly and robustly under aerodynamic loading."
