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.
