From giant jellyfish to manta rays , researchers have already seen that minimal motion can be a great advantage to propulsion. Scientists at Stanford have created a small robot inspired by a flying fish that can travel through the air farther than a “ballistic jumping” machine. The aircraft can also adjust its launch angle depending on the surface to move and land gracefully without having to sacrifice distance.

Comments Off on CES 2010 – Up Close With LG’s OLED Television
