Festo BionicOpter mimics the flight of dragonfly [Innovation]
posted March 29 2013 20:57.54 by Giorgos Lazaridis




Festo Bionics is a sub division of Festo pneumatics which studies the animals and the different motion forms, as well as natural phenomena, and they design make pneumatic systems mimicking these phenomena.

I've already posted one or two articles with their innovations, but this one is different!

With the BionicOpter, Festo has technically mastered the highly complex flight characteristics of the dragonfly. Just like its model in nature, this ultralight flying object can fly in all directions, hover in mid-air and glide without beating its wings.
