Researchers at NASA Ames Research Center and MIT have a radically new idea for an aircraft wing: hundreds of tiny subassemblied bolted together to form a constantly deformable lattice.

The identical pieces change shape to control the plane's flight.

Read this month's Tech Brief to learn more of the details.

What do you think? Will NASA's New Wing Bring Greater Flexibility to Aircraft Design?
