Robotic LEGO Mechatronic Wings That React To The Environment Around You

If you ever wondered what you’d get when you combined the eye of a fashion designer with the skills of an engineer and interaction designer, you’d get something as sick as this robotic LEGO mechatronic-enabled set of wearable wings. Designed by Anouk Wipprecht, the project continues her desire to create systems that tend toward AI, using the body as a “host” and able to react to the environments around them. Wipprecht’s wings are made of Mindstorms EV3 and Technic parts and can react to objects approaching the wearer. Even better, Wipprecht outlined exactly how to make your own set in detail on Instructables. See the wings in action below.
