It’s a Bird! It’s not a plane!

Plenty of robots can fly—but none can fly like a real bird. That is, until Markus Fischer and his team at Festo built SmartBird, a large, lightweight robot, modeled on a seagull, that flies by flapping its wings. A soaring demo fresh from TEDGlobal 2011.

Absolutely Amazing…..

And a Penguin:



And an Air_Ray:
