Robotic seeds take flight!

First there was the robotic dog. Let's not forget the swimming robotic snake. Or my personal favorite: the flying robot penguin. But now we have a new potential overlord, modeled after this.



That's right: a maple seed! "But Javier," you ask, "maple seeds are boring compared to dogs, snakes, and penguins. Why are you so excited about RoboSeed?"

Ah! Just take a look at these Samara-esque monocopters in action.



UPDATE: Speaking of funky robots, behold the skiing robot! It just needs a machine gun and it can chase James Bond down the slopes.

Love it, J! Always been fascinated by how we humans have (ahem) appropriated nature's best designs.. -bleuz00m
