By articulating, I do mean moving. We want it to do as much as possible. I found this amazing guy on deviantart.com who created a DC motor that allowed his wings to flap and stretch. I've tried contacting him to see what he used (because I'm kinda into engineering and I am sure I can figure out how to put together the motor if he gave me the material list) but he hasn't messaged me back yet.
We at least
want them to fold (so we don't crash into things, it wouldn't be fun to have our wings ripped off). Making them flap would take more effort, I get that, but we are willing to put in the time and manpower. Originally, we wanted them to be attached to our arms or wrists or the like so that when our arms moved, the wings moved to kinda make it look more realistic. Ideally, we'd want something between our original idea and the guy's wonderful contraption.
Thank you so much for trying to help me
