Remember the Bionic Penguin?


Recommended Posts

So I went to see They Might Be Giants on Saturday in London, and what should I see swimming beautifully around the hall before the concert? None other than the Festo Bionic Air Penguin (previously on watmm)




oh and also a jellyfish




The way these things move is beautiful, because they really are swimming through the air, and so the movement looks very natural.


I hear the penguin can be left in autonomous mode, and it will swim around the space on its own using sonar to navigate. I think on this occasion it may have been under remote control.


The penguins are still at the RFH in London this weekend I think if you want to see them.
