Micromachine sensors like this one are being developed in Horiuchi's lab, based on principles learned from the echolocating bat.

Just in time for Halloween, Associate Professor Timothy Horiuchi  (ECE/ISR) is interviewed on the radio about his work in transferring capabilities of echolocating bats to micromachines. Reporter Randy Atkins manages to work both a "bat" and "Frankenstein" angle in the same interview!
