In yet another cue from nature, a German company has developed bionic butterflies that look and fly like the real thing even in proximity to each other.
Weighing little more than an ounce but with a wingspan of around 20 inches, each butterfly is equipped with two motors, two batteries, infrared markers and wings made up of soft elastic material.
Designed as a technology research platform, a demonstration shows them flying around a room, installed with ten cameras, infrared tracking and a central computer which coordinates their movement.
Several are in motion simultaneously at the same time, and the real-time communications prevent potentially damaging collisions.
The devices were not developed to sell but represent continued research efforts towards making ultralight networked robotic systems.
