    Microphones are perhaps the most common electronic sensor in the world, with an estimated 320 million listening for our commands in smart speakers.

  • Bird-like wings

    “3D morphing” wings could help small aircraft safely navigate windy urban streets and land with shorter approaches.

Birds make morphing wings look effortless, bending in a wide range of planes and arcs.
