A small robotic flying machine resembling a jellyfish can maintain stability in flight by the movement of its wings alone, according to researchers. New York University applied mathematicians Leif Ristroph and Stephen Childress built the ornithopter, which can fly forward, hover and right itself from tilting by generating a downward jet with the motion of the wings, similar to that of a jellyfish bell. Their findings have been published in the Journal of the Royal Society Interface.
