A Robot That Flies Like a Bird

Date Added: Jul 2011
Format: Webcast

In this webcast, the presenter explains about plenty of robots can fly - but none can fly like a real bird. That is, until Markus Fischer and his team at Festo built SmartBird, a large, lightweight robot, modeled on a seagull, that flies by flapping its wings. A soaring demo fresh from TEDGlobal 2011.
