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.

Gokiraji, Roboroach

“Gokiraji” is a combination of “Gokiburi” (cockroaches) and “Rajikon” (remote-controlled). This is Gokiraji, the Japanese electronic cockroach which can be charged with USB.

The price is about 21 US dollars.

In robotic, there are two research fields which related to animal and robotics. First, biomorphic robotic is a sub-discipline of robotic, focused on emulating the mechanics, sensor systems, and computing system to mimic the behaviour of animals (wiki). The other is animatronic, which is the use of mechatronic to animate rather than robotic (wiki: en,de). Jurassic Park, the movies, are example of the usage of animatronics.

Quadrotor Dance, Pennsylvanian style

Watch dancing nano quadrotors from GRASP Lab, University of Pennsylvania!
It is an example of swarm robotics.

GRASP is General Robotics, Automation, Sensing and Perception. The researchs in this lab focus on robotics.

Robot Generator

Today, I found an interesting link to a website how to generate robot picture.

This robot generator is developed by young japanese with a nickname Rarapima (profil,plurk,twitter). The webservice generate robot from names. For example, if I put my name “Ignatius Sapto Condro”, a picture of humanoid robot will be generated. This service is case sensitive, so you can have fun with writing combinations of your names.

Some examples:

  • “Indar Sugiarto”, see here
  • “Ignatius Sapto Condro”, see here
  • “Atmawan Bisawarna”, see here
  • “iscab saptocondro”, see here
  • “Mova Al Afghani”, see here or here
  • “Mohadig Widha Rousstia”, see here
  • “Eka Suwartadi”, see here
  • “Ulfah Siregar”, see here
  • “Vita Amanda Putri”, see here
  • “Florentin Olivia”, see here
  • “Teuku Reiza Yuanda”, see here

Grup Robot Indonesia

Grup Robot Indonesia

Indonesian Robotic Developer Community


I received a Facebook link from a friend which took me to this community website. This robotic developer community is new on the internet. Their web posts began in this December. It is a good news  for me that there is an Indonesia robotic community who shows up right now. I hope they will last long.


Baru saja kuterima tautan Facebook dari seorang kawan yang membawaku ke laman web paguyuban ini. Grup robotik ini baru muncul di internet bulan Desember ini. Berita bagus buatku kalau ada komunitas robotika Indonesia yang tampil. Semoga umur mereka panjang.


Merry Christmas 2011 and Happy New Year 2012!

Selamat Natal 2011 dan Tahun Baru 2012!
