Stanford engineers are also getting in on the UAV action, but in the most Earth Mother of ways. They've just built a one of a kind wind tunnel and are putting birds through their (voluntary, working for food) paces in it, using slow motion cameras to track how their wings automatically adjust. The end goal of the study is to design better drones, based on what the birds automatically do in the wind.
And Shell has designed a city-car concept that would be all gas, but get 107 miles a gallon.
