      • Controlled flight of a robotic insect


        from Wyss Institute Added 158K 125 3

        Inspired by the biology of a fly, with submillimeter-scale anatomy and two wafer-thin wings that flap at 120 times per second, robotic insects, or RoboBees, achieve vertical takeoff, hovering, and steering. The tiny robots flap their wings using piezoelectric actuators -- strips of ceramic that expand and contract when an electric field is applied. Thin hinges of plastic embedded within a carbon fiber body frame serve as joints, and a delicately balanced control system commands the rotational motions in the flapping-wing robot, with each wing controlled independently in real-time. Applications of RoboBees could include distributed environmental monitoring, search-and-rescue operations, and assistance with crop pollination.

          Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans is a groundbreaking street art project created by PangeaSeed members and supporting artists to help bring the beauty and the plight of the world’s oceans into streets around the globe via public art. From Dec 1 - 7, 2014, together with 6 internationally renowned artists and project partners 1xRun and Sean Havas Gallery, we brought Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans into the streets of the Wynwood district of Miami, Florida during Art Basel, the largest art fair in the America's, to help educate and inspire the local and international communities to help protect Florida's threatened marine life. The supporting mural artist line up includes Meggs (Australia), Nychos (Austria), Hannah Stouffer (USA), Naturel (USA), Brian Hebets (USA), and Aaron Glasson (New Zealand) focusing on endangered Florida ocean life such as hammerhead sharks, tiger sharks, lemon sharks, spotted eagle rays, manatees, alligators and sail fish. Together, we can help save our seas. Visit PangeaSeed.org for more information. Filmed and edited by Aaron Glasson. Additional footage by Tre' Packard. Underwater footage by Sean Havas.
