    Definition: A multimode (flying/crawling) insect is being developed by Prof. Robert Michelson and his design team from the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI), University of Cambridge (England), and ETS Labs. Michelson's Entomopter is a type of ornithopter, which is the broader term for any device intended to fly by flapping wings.

    Etymology: The name 'Entomopter' is derived from ''entomo'' (meaning insect: as in entomology) + ''pteron'' (meaning wing).
