Markus Fischer, who heads up corporate design for a German company called Festo, has demonstrated his new invention he calls the "Smart Bird". It is an ultra-light weight robot created in the likeness of a seagull that flaps its wings and can fly through the air under its own power with grace.
It's a spectacle to behold, for sure, and as you can see in the video below, it was able to elicit quite a reaction from the mesmerized crowd.
But there's one thing I really want to know: When do we get "Smart Birds" big enough for people to fit in?
