Robotic bird for spying on humans

A shape-shifting, robotic bird that can sweep through the skies without a peep has all the right stuff for ground surveillance and even spying on its real-life inspiration—the common swift.

The robotic bird measures 20 inches (51 centimeters) from wingtip to wingtip and weighs less than three ounces (80 grams). Like a real bird, RoboSwift can sweep its wings back and forth, changing the shape and surface area.

The team expects to build the micro airplane in the coming months and fly it in January 2008. Link
