Water-Walking Drones

Scientists Lay the Foundation for Water-Walking Drones

Scientists at Utah State University’s Splash Lab unveiled a new insight into ‘water skipping’. This common past time of children can make way for walking drones on water in the near future. The researchers studied how elastic spheres interact with water and skip over a tank of water to move progressively. Additionally, they used high-speed cameras to record that elastic spheres gain momentum over a first several impacts. Consequently, this
