Amazing Flying Robots from Festo

A demonstration at the USA Science and Engineering Festival in Washington, D.C., gave enthusiasts a chance to see the incredible flying robots created by Festo, a German industrial automation company. 
Festo use robots like these to explore the ways in which nature's genius can be used to inform our own engineering and technological advances and innovations. 

In addition to the eMotion Butterfly, AirPenguin and AirJelly, the company have produced robotic ants capable of cooperation, flying seagulls, hopping kangaroos and a 'gripper' inspired by the tongue of a chameleon. These projects all fall within Festo's Bionic Learning Network, set up in collaboration with well-known universities, institutes, development companies and private inventors to examine the ways in which natural phenomena and processes can be adapted to improve automation technology.
