Festo's biomechatronic bird


Recommended Posts

I missed this one.....

Impressive !

I bet the Military have some interest in these, i'm sure that they could put one of these to good use.

Not so sure that they could attach Hellfire's to it though.....Lol

Probably because it's about a remarkable piece of engineering expertise and not a school-boy joke? :norty::norty::norty:

Yes, precisely so John, and Rammy’s feeble attempt at deliberate obtusity fools nobody on here, well I'd like to think so anyway.

Thanks Senator, I bit of a relief that the fly bird appears to be a reality.

I just don't have the stomach to listen, with rolling eyes, to the on-going crowing from the ever resident rodent!!

Ramies spot on this is an April fools joke. Spend 5 mins reading their site and while you can see they do some pretty impressive stuff this isn't one of them. Pretty good CGI and that's all I'm afraid.Dave

Must admit I was a bit sceptical when I saw it, considering the date, April 1st

However when following it up to the Hannover 2011 presentation and seeing it demonstrated in front of an audience (and then crashing to the ground)

I am a believer,

Sorry Rammy

I just hope they can make a robotic squirell based on the John Rambo character,then it could hunt down all squirrells and wipe them out from the forum,at least someone would not be too happy if Rambo The robotic was in town.
