German researchers have now developed a 3-D x-ray machine that can look inside living insects for a detailed picture of how they move, as they move.   The mechanics of insects’ bodies has long intrigued scientists and engineers, as it can often be applied in robotics.  They try to create robots that imitate insects’ movements, as their bodies are perfectly adapted for their natural habitats.  The new x-ray machine will help scientists see precisely how insects...
