Festo Bionic Creations

It’s amazing to think that one day humans may be overrun by killer robotic… penguins? The video above is a display video by the technology company Festo, who are creating some absolutely amazing technology. Basing their research around the penguin, they’ve created completely robotic penguins that can swim just like they’re bird counterparts, but that’s not all. They’ve also created dirigible like penguins that can fly around autonomously, as in they don’t need help and they won’t crash into each other.

The first part of the video is pretty much all you need to see, but there’s also a great part about an interactive wall that is pretty exciting as well.
