Robot Raven So Advanced It Fools Hawk

Robotic Raven

We want to highlight incredible feats of engineering here at BOED, and today we have an amazing robot bird developed by the robotics department at the University of Maryland. The robo-raven can perform any aeronautic maneuver imaginable – all thanks to wings that move independently of one another.

It’s possible the robot raven could have real world uses such as reconnaissance or surveillance, but it would really be sweet to see these sold to consumers as backyard toys. Check out this video, especially at the 1:49 mark where the robot bird has an encounter with a hawk, which attacks it in mid air:
