MIT's seafaring robotic glider surfs like a sailboat and soars like an albatross

The Albatross glider, designed by MIT engineers, on the Charles River in Boston

If you crossed an albatross with a sailboat, what would you get? According to a team of MIT engineers, you'd end up with a hybrid robotic glider that enjoys the best of both the aerial and on-water worlds. The team's Albatross glider soars like a bird and skims the water like a sail craft, yet requires less wind than an albatross needs to stay aloft, and can travel 10 times faster than a sailboat.
