Referencing nature to create robots is nothing new, but this is one of the most beautiful examples I've seen. How surreal it is to see the BionicOpter in motion; like sci-fi. The BionicOpter can fly in every direction, hover in mid-air and even glide without beating its wings. It was created by Festo, modeled after the dragonfly, and why not? After all, nature and evolution have been doing okay for millions upon millions of years. Via LikeCool.
