Researchers are stuffing drones into taxidermy birds to make them seem more ‘natural’

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, drones, robotics/AI

Researchers have engineered a robotic lionfish with synthetic arteries, similar to those found in a human’s circulatory system. The fish “blood” that runs through it serves as both the robot’s power source and controls its movement. The findings, published Wednesday in Nature, may propel the new wave of soft robots, in which inventors seek to improve lifelike automated machines for human connection.

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s… sort of both, actually. And its designers think animals won’t notice the difference.
