Even though its creator Edwin Van Ruymbeke calls it ‘the furtive drone’, the Bionic Bird is unlike any drone we have seen before. For one, it has wings that actually flap creating the lift needed to keep it airborne. No whirring motors here!
You need to learn how to fly the bird using your smartphone, but once you do, you can start pulling off some impressive tricks. Controlling the bird is very natural – you simply move your phone as if it is a giant 3D mouse.
