Flying bird robot!

This comes courtesy Danny K.:

This video was a TED talk that came out a bit over a year ago that shows how a research team was able to develop a robot that looks and acts like a bird. It flies by flapping its wings and is able to make relatively sharp turns. I feel like this video is so cool because it shows how we're getting close to being able to find out how birds can fly, glide, and turn so efficiently. If we can improve the technology, a new efficient form of air travel can be created, which I think is really cool.
