Small Object of Desire #32 – Fly Like A Bird

I just love this short video of a robot that flies pretty much like a real bird. It really tickles my geeky bone. I’m amazed at the simplicity of the mechanics that power it and it’s lightness – only 450 grams. The best thing though is the audience reaction…

…and the reaction of real gulls when it was tested in the outdoors.
