BionicOpter dragonfly robot


FESTO demonstrates Bionicopter

The robot dragonfly measures 44 cm (17.3-inches) long from tip to tail. Its sturdy and lightweight housing and mechanical system are fashioned from aluminum, polyamide (sintered) and terpolymer (deep-drawn ABS), contributing to its overall weight of just 175 g.

The beast is controlled by an ARM microcontroller, which calculates all of the parameters relating to mechanical adjustment based on input from the onboard inertia, acceleration and position sensors, together with pilot input, then translates these into movement by actuating the servo motors.

In an attempt to slow impact, or even prevent it entirely, the patent describes possible "gripping members" that would turn power cords or headphone connectors into makeshift grappling hooks, perhaps with teeth or hooks that bind into the device in the event of dropping it.

This patent really brings out various possible methods to prevent damage(smashed-screen) to the device which many people are worried about.
