I found an interesting article on a flexible wing system.  It looks like they just covered the wing in some kind of flexible membrane to help with aerodynamics.  Very cool!

NASA has been playing with that concept for awhile.  Changing the planform of the wing in flight can potentially yield a much greater speed envelope.
