Penguin propulsion could drive marine vessels

Scientists have created a highly efficient and extremely maneuverable propulsion system by mimicking the shoulder of an Emperor penguin. The mechanism, which features an innovative spherical joint with three actuated degrees of freedom, could lead to new types of propellers that have directional thrusting capability. Caltech’s Flavio Noca was inspired to design the device after […]
