Flying Robotic Penguins!
Sounding more like an exclamation of shock issued by Robin from the old Batman TV series, the title of this post is more than apt. No it's not some crazy cryptid, but the latest in robotic engineering.
Check out this video to see how first the scientists at Festo built an underwater robot with abilities that are based on our favourite marine bird, but also surpass them, then combined their findings with airship technology to create some of the most beautiful and serene flying robots I've ever seen (not that I make it a mission to see flying robots might I add).
I've informed Jim of what I would like for Christmas :D
