29 Aug Stanford Students Discover Groundbreaking Flight Behavior



Students in David Lentink’s Biomechanics of Flight class use a special high-speed camera to discover new, never-before-seen intricacies of flight. Students use the slow motion video to analyze flight parameters for future applications.

    stanford is #6 on best colleges in the U.S.. These guys probably could've gotten into Harvard if Ivy Leagues weren't so stuck on having hierarchy.

    I guess the professor hasn't discovered braces…. Invisalign?

    So, urm, what is the discovery again?

    This is what I feel too. When will we live in an open-source society?! gr….

    How much does it cost to go to Stanford?

    Yes. Better drones. Thats exactly what we need.

    I was being sort of sarcastic. Of course it's what we do. We can't 'make' knowledge after all.

    I'm pretty sure da Vinci already knew about this

    Probably because lipo battery and brushless motor technology is finally good enough to make a remote control tiny bird.

    Nothing new. There are slow motion hummingbird videos on YouTube that's 4 years old. I guess these guys don't know how to use YouTube or watch the discovery channel.

    It's videos like this that make me realize how much I focus my attention to the damage of superficial social behaviors, when I should marvel at the people studying such things as this, in a way that progresses society. Thanks.

    Apparently Stanford is one of the leaders in technology that will eliminate privacy…good job!

    Hummingbirds, for example, appear to do a very fast, very small shake along their spines, sort of like a wet dog shaking off–except in mid-flight. This has never been seen before, but could give teams attempting to create flying robots new clues as to how nature deals with the challenge of flight.

    I've seen plenty of high-speed video of hummingbirds, but never quite to this level.
    Hard to tell, though, because we're only seeing about 3—5 seconds of footage on each bird type in this video.

    I like how they basically said "not much has been done in this field, that's why it's groundbreaking".

  • TankCmndr

    Their research is very interesting, but could a video of just the birds be posted?

    How is this outdated learning supposed to prepare a student for the real world, you guys are a business first just like every other overrated university. Remember business first, your job is to keep those seats filled.

    National geographic did a whole thing on how humming birds fly in slow motion this harry potter loving nerds are late to the party but want to scream first like the retards on youtube.

    Someone call David Attenborough and tell him Stanford's late to the party

    When I watched this video I expected it to be something old. Something along the lines of "With high speed video capture having been just developed we can capture these movements.." yadda yadda. So I looked at the date and it was posted this month? I thought Stanford had a leg up on technology and things that most people can't really get but honestly, this was just disappointing.

    The really funny thing is how they talk like they're actually doing something useful and new.

    I haven't heard shit that was new to me.
    No wonder Stanford isn't an engineering school.
