Bionic Dragonfly

The German automation specialist Festo released information about another result of their bionic research program. You might remember the flying and swimming penguin, manta ray, jelly fish and lots of other animals they already build. Some even got mentioned in one of William Gibsons novels Zero History.

In their latest attempt to replicate nature they now tried to emulate the flight of the dragonfly. More information on the “BionicOpter” here. There is also a detailed pdf brochure.
