Robotic butterfly

• Dubbed robotterfly, the robotic butterfly’s wings and legs are powered by servo motors — small, powerful motors that are often used in robotic applications.
• In spring 2008 the students were invited to give a presentation on the invention at the <Witte Museum http://www.wittemuseum.org/about_the_witte/index.html> in San Antonio, Texas.
• The InvenTeam plans to incorporate the robotterfly in an interactive museum exhibit, which will mimic the behaviors and habitat of butterflies.
