    Robotic smart bird


    A German company has developed a gull which can fly like real gulls. Smart Bird, which uses a compact 135 brushless motor, can start, fly and land autonomously. An articulated torsion drive unit allows the bird to beat its wings up and down as well twist at specific angles. Company Fesco built robotic gull from carbon fiber and polyurethane foam, the ultra light Smart Bird weighs 485 grams, operates at 23 watts and can be controlled from the ground using a radio controller.



    The German company said that the bird's functional integration of coupled drive units could potentially be transferred to the development and optimization of a range of hybrid drive technology - from generators that derive energy from water to new actuators in process automation.
    The minimal use of materials and the bird's lightweight construction also pave the way for efficiency in resource and energy consumption, says Festo.

    A goodwill jesture of some birds and butterflies to be sent as gifts to neighbours would be welcomed by the indian public as spark said , would look funny but then the go green and WWF would have a hard time because by the super intelligent minds that our neighbouring friends posses t5hey can start shooting all living birds from tomorrow fearing them to be the gift items

    Oh yes... Got it


    Meet the new project IAI: "Butterfly of Death


    The next development sounds like science fiction: a tiny butterfly, colorful, beautiful. Is flying, without concern, walked into a room through the window. A few seconds later heard a muffled explosion. Requested finished. "Butterfly of Death" is one of the innovative inventions of the IAI. Behind the invention is Bear Benyamini, 70, an entire industry bouncing Division
    Yigal Mosko | News 2 | Posted 13/05/11 21:47

    Dubi Benyamini called butterflies and people of Israel. With the hobby he started at age 9. Almost more than sixty years. This man lives and breathes butterflies, and he gave the Hebrew names for butterflies land.

    He knows where they come from and where they fly and how they make love. He learned this tiny machine so well, he's already starting to compete with Mama Nature. Benyamini fluttering creatures creator himself. The first time, allowed to photograph inside the IAI secret laboratory robot project and see Benjamin's bow.

    There, in the laboratory, found that pet insect, a tiny robot, shaped like a butterfly. Such tools can fly in areas such closed at Ben Gurion Airport. In the first stage, the application of the tool will be in the form of a butterfly flying across the terminal, and can take pictures and transmit video in real time.


    In the second stage, the butterfly can chase targets. Benyamini explains: "Suppose a terrorist has a train station, the terminal starts running and the butterfly can not run after him." Capillaries also explains that he could kill a butterfly.
    Robot works on nectar

    Benyamini engineer is one of the most innovative and respected minds IAI. More than 40 years he worked here thirty years ago, Israel's security prize for developing the Kfir aircraft system. Then there was the production manager of the Lavi project, which dominated the budget of a billion dollars, when, under hundreds of employees. In fact, almost all of his adult life working on fighter jets.

    But six years ago, decided Benyamini one between his love. Benyamini imitated the dragonfly flight model it built. "This movement of two pairs of wings, it's something that we imitate the flight of the robot," explains Benyamini.

    "This kind of butterfly, need fuel so he could fly for a long time," he says, "so we thought about the possibility of
    Milk energy from nature. "Thus, just like a real butterfly, butterfly robot may be able to work when using the nectar of flowers as raw material. Or alternatively, there might be a Thai sun on the wings and when he would rest somewhere in the sun's radiation to fill the batteries.

    It is unclear when this butterfly will be operational, if ever. But Benyamini said that if need be, he will build the butterfly can pursue terrorists and eliminate them. "What they wanted from me, I work to order," he explains.
