COM BAT or Center for Objective Microelectronics and Biomimetic Advanced Technology.

Dr. Kamil Sarabandi, the electrical engineering and computer science professor who is directing its development envision a six-inch, robotic spy plane modeled after a bat that could gather data and send it back to soldiers in real time.

The bat robot's body would be about six inches long. It would weigh about a quarter of a pound and use about 1 W of power.

The radar unit, for instance, will have to weigh less than twenty-five grams (the approximate weight of a standard AA battery), which Sarabandi readily acknowledges, "is science fiction." Now. The Michigan engineers are learning from nature, however. "We have been copying what bats are doing in terms of echolocation for navigation in the dark and collision avoidance."

For example, the Oxygen card can rust neighboring metal cards and the Copper Conductor card can shock any metals. The oxidation state of an element is used as its attack power, and its physical state determines its movement on the board.
