Can We Learn Anything From A Dragonfly About Making a Better Drone?

Today's guest says we already have.  Alex Caccia is a serial entrepreneur, with start-ups in hardware and software, as well as sports equipment. He is also the CEO of Animal Dynamics, a spinout company from the Department of Zoology at Oxford University.  Animal Dynamics is setting out to develop a portfolio of products derived from research into evolutionary adaptions in flight, swimming, walking, based on the fundamentals mechanisms of high-performance animals. Their current project, the Skeeter Drone, is micro droned with flapping wings like a dragon fly.  In this episode of the Drone Radio Show, Alex talks about Animal Dynamics, the science behind looking at high performance animals, the Skeeter Drone, and the role of university based research in launching new technologies.
