Improved Drone Cameras Inspired By Swan’s Springy Neck

An unlikely source of inspiration lies behind Stanford University researchers’ efforts to improve video captured by aerial drones. The engineers have used high-speed video footage and computer models to reveal that whooper swans stabilize their head with a complex neck that’s tuned like a car suspension. Swans and geese are a marvel to aeronautical engineers. […]
