Festo’s bionic bird robots flap their wings, fly

Festo has a thing for making robots that remarkably an eerily resemble real-life creatures. We’ve seen a touch of their magic with penguins and dolphins, and this time they’ve taken to the skies with the SmartBird robot. The bionic robot can flap its wings, which give it the capability to fly and glide like a real bird. The robot can start, land and fly autonomously. Thankfully, it hasn’t yet thought of hunting as a means to sustain itself.
