Bionic Bird

Yet another drone? Far from it. A successful Indiegogo campaign turned Edwin Van Ruymbeke's clever invention into mass-market reality. This stunning electronic bird has real flapping wings that let it fly naturally like a bird. The coolest thing is that you control it by simply waving your smartphone around! What could be cooler than that?

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.
