The insect has two pair of wings that create micro-draughts between them. This alloys energy efficiency and savings, an ultra fast flight or stationary as well as unique movements.
In the energy sector with the architect Renzo Piano that inspired from dragonfly wings to design a windmill with two blades. It is able to resist stronger winds but also to fly under winds of very low intensity.
Research teams are working on micro-drones inspired from the dragonfly. Their specific feature is stationary, silent and low energy flight.
In the construction industry, thanks to the idea of Renzo Piano to design a very compact windmill that anyone can build in his backyard.
