    Inspired by different bird species that have differently shaped wings according to the speed at which they fly, biomimetic scientists designed morphing aircraft wings that change shape according to the speed and duration of flight were designed. In order to change the shape and underlying structure of the aircraft wings, the researchers needed to make the overlying skin also be able to change, which their design does by covering the wings with fish-inspired scales that could slide over each other.
