This Amazing Seagull Robot Can Really Fly

Dang it, why do most robots resemble humans or emulate human functions? Why not try to replicate the abilities of creatures from outside our species? Well the folks at Festo Have done just that. Say hello to the Smartbird, a robotic Herring Gull.

The amazingly realistic Smartbird can take off, fly and land on it’s own. It weighs just 450g and has a wingspan of 1.96m. It’s wings don’t just move up and down, they also twist to optimize flight. The bot’s head and tail also aid it’s flight.

Take a look at the video below. It is simply amazing how natural the Smartbird looks while in flight!
