Bionic Bird: the Furtive Drone

[— #awesomegeekness Winner November 19, 2014 —]

Following in the footsteps of his father, who created a flying bird machine in the 1960’s, Edwin Van Ruymbeke has created a beautiful remote controlled flying bird using biomimicry. See his indiegogo crowdfunding campaign. The prototype in flight is inspiring and impressive.

Once an HD camera is added, imagine the places it could fly unnoticed. That’s both fun and kind of scary.

Though it already funded, there’s still availability to get a remote-controlled “Bionic Bird” sans camera for just $100. We want one!
