Well, kind of. Our wings don't actually allow the user to take off, but they sure look out of this world. Check out the aesthetics page for info on the work behind making our wings look fly.
For our final project, we decided to create a wearable set of articulated wings that respond to environmental stimuli. Comfortable, lightweight, sturdy, and sparkly... What more could you want? Take a look at our About page to learn more about what we did.
Surprisingly, our team is not composed of a mythical Greek inventor. However, we sure have the smarts of Daedalus with our team members Christina, Sophie, Margo, Siena, and MJ. More info on our roles and contributions can be found on the Meet the Team pages.
For this sprint we integrated the subsystems and assembled our final MVP. To accomplish this we improved the backboard, created sturdier motor mounts, integrated unltrasonic sensors, laser-cut thicker plywood wing 'bones', attached feathers, and sewed comfortable foam filled harness straps.
