An origami-like drone developed at EPFL is flexible enough to absorb shocks without breaking before returning to its initial shape. This new type of drone, which was inspired by insect wings, draws on the advantages of both stiff and flexible structures.

Cause it's relevant and possibly of interest to those interested in rotorcraft? Plenty of other drone stuff throughout the site
