A Smartphone Controlled Robotic Bird That Can Fly



In the sky, Bionic Bird is the only flying object in the world that doesn’t frighten birds away. On the contrary, it attracts them all! Friends and enemies alike… Bionic Bird is fearless in the face of predators thanks to its indestructible foam body and replaceable carbon fiber tail and wing structure.

Bionic Bird’s French makers are currently raising crowdfunds on Indiegogo. They describe their creation as a “furtive drone”. Furtive because it’s biomimetic. Aka it flaps like a bird. So it’s rather less Half Life-esque to look at than the average drone. Certainly from a distance.

To the point where bona fide birds appear willing to accept it as one of their own, thanks to its mechanical fluttering. Or, in the case of larger birds of prey, swoop in close to check out whether it’s potential dinner.
