BionicOpter, Dragonfly Robot

Last year, I posted about Gokiraji, the Roboroach from Japan. Now, there is BionicOpter, the dragonfly robot. This robot is from Festo, a german company based in Esslingen am Neckar, Baden-Wurtemberg. This BionicOpter is also an example of Biomorphic Robotic, a branch of robotics mimicking biological system, for example animals.

The BionicOpter video from Festo can be seen here in Youtube.

The robot can fly with 4 wings, like a dragonfly. It can maneuver in all direction or hover on the same position or glide without beating its wings, as Festo said.
