At the conference we were demonstrating how bumblebees flap their wings. This first prototype was just for figuring out how to make the wings move in a figure eight motion and flip on each cycle. Our next challenge is to rotate the mechanism 90 degrees and to evaluate optimal wing designs that can drive the figure eight motion.
